Salsa is a popular form of social dance that originated in the Caribbean. It origins in Puerto Rican bomba and plena, Cuban Son, cha-cha-cha, mambo and other dance forms. The dance, along with salsa music, originated in the mid-1970s in New York. Different regions of Latin America and the United States have distinct salsa styles of their own, such as Cuban, Puerto Rican, Cali Colombia, L.A. and New York styles. Salsa dance socials are commonly held in night clubs, bars, ballrooms, restaurants, and outside, especially when part of an outdoor festival.
Bachata is a style of social dance from the Dominican Republic which is now danced all over the world. It is associated with bachata music.
Bachata Sensual is a dance form with strict lead and follow principles. The dance is an interpretation of the music with mostly circular movements and body waves. When the music has stronger beats, however, the dance also uses isolation and dips.
Dominican Bachata, also known to some as the authentic version of Bachata, is danced to faster music, adding more footwork, rhythmic free-styling and with alternation between close and open position.
