Salsa Dance Classes in Vancouver

What is Salsa?

Salsa is a dance and musical style with Caribbean and African roots and it includes a mixture of various Rhythms such as Chachacha, Son Montuno, Guajiras and Guarachas. It is known to be fun and spicy, and today you can find a Salsa scene in almost any part of the world!

What do you mean by "On1" and "On2"?

Salsa dance has three main styles - Casino (Cuban), On1 (L.A. Style) and On2 (New York Style). The names refer to the origins of the style and each style is characterized by the main "breaking step", the line of dance, as well as by the way the lead and follow execute their turns and styling. While originally each style was shaped to suit a specific style of Salsa music, over the decades the popularization of Salsa (dance and music) has led dancers all over the world dancing all styles of Salsa dance to all styles of Salsa music.
