Salsa is the Spanish word for “sauce” describing the “spicy” and “hot” flavor of this popular dance style. Salsa is danced to a complex mix of many different rhythms. There are indications the term Salsa was used by radio disc jockeys in Puerto Rico in the 1960′s. Later associated with a New York sound developed by Puerto Rican musicians, Salsa is considered the national music and dance of Puerto Rico. The fusion of an Afro-Cuban beat with enhanced jazz textures results in music with an aggressive high energy pulse which has become popular everywhere. Many of the step patterns are related to those of the Mambo and Cha Cha.
