Hire a salsa dancer

Hola! in Spanish and Olá in Portuguese!

Salsa is the sexy, sultry Latin dance form related to the sassy, spicy, upbeat music genre of the same name which started in the 1960s in New York City. It evolved from a popular dance style called Mambo. Salsa was mainly developed by Puerto Ricans living in New York in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Different states of Latin America and the United States have individual salsa styles of their own, such as Cuban, Cali Colombia, Puerto Rican, L.A. and New York styles.

In most styles of salsa dancing, as the dancer shifts their weight by stepping, the upper torso remains level and nearly unaffected by the weight changes. Weight changes cause the hips to move. Arm and shoulder movements are also included. The basic Salsa dance rhythm involves of taking three steps for every four beats of music. The odd number of steps creates the syncopation that is characteristic of Salsa dancing and ensures that it takes 8 beats of music to loop back to a new sequence of dance steps.
