Salsa is a distillation of many Latin and Afro-Caribbean dances. Salsa music has its origins sometime in the 1950s to 1970s, with the truly distinct salsa style coming out of New York in the 1970s. The music fuses a number of Cuban styles and number of other Latin American musical styles.

Salsa dancing is danced to on eight-beat musical harmony, with dancers moving on three beats, pausing for one beat, dancing for three beats, and pausing for one beat.
The movement style is left-right-left-pause, then right-left-right-pause. During the pause in mostÂ salsa dancing some sort of flourish is utilized, be it a stomp of the foot, casting out the hand or kicking the lower leg. SalsaÂ dancing is mostly a stationaryÂ dance, with little movement around the dance floor.Â Instead, dancers rely on the subtle movement of their legs and upper bodies to convey the energy of the dance.
