For further information call Jennifer on[masked] or refer to our Facebook Group : "Club 50/50 Latin Dance Classes Group" http://www.club5050.com.au What is Salsa? Salsa is a popular form of social dance that originated in New York with strong influences from Latin America, particularly Cuba (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cuba) and Puerto Rico (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puerto_Rico). The movements of salsa have their origins in Cuban Son, Cha-cha-cha (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cha-cha-cha_%28dance%29), Mambo (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mambo_%28dance%29) and other dance forms, and the dance, along with salsa music, originated in the mid-1970s in New York (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_York). Salsa, like most music genres has gone through a lot of changes through the years and incorporated elements of Swing dancing (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swing_dancing) and Hustle (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hustle_%28dance%29), as well as elements of Afro-Cuban and Afro-Caribbean dances such as Guaguanco (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guaguanco) and Pachanga (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pachanga). We teach L.A. style Salsa which is danced on 1, in a slot, with a measure of easiness and adaptability to it. The count is 1,2,3, 5,6,7 . L.A. style places strong emphasis on sensuousness, theatricality, aerobics (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerobics) and musicality. Join us and become a Club 50/50 Salsero or Salsera Come and learn from the QLD & Australian Latin dance champions 2013 - 2015. We have been instructed by the famous 8 times World Latin Dance Champion Oliver Pineda. For further information call Jennifer on[masked] http://www.club5050.com.au
