Like Son, Mambo belongs to Cuba! This music, and later also the dance, originated in Cuba in the sixties and later mixed with elements of jazz in New York. The mambo is danced syncopated. The 2nd and 4th beat of a bar are emphasized in the music.
The Cha Cha Cha is a modern, pair-danced ballroom dance of Cuban origin, which has not much to do with the ballroom dance. The music is cheerful and carefree. The dance is an amusing and flirty flirtation between the dance partners, who play with each other in open and closed figures. The Cuban Cha Cha Cha lives from the hip movement and is danced small and “earthy”, that is, the steps are always set on the whole foot and feet hardly raised from the ground. A nice dynamic variation to salsa.
Partnerwork is the basis of the salsa dance, as it is essentially a couple dance. It consists of spontaneously dancing with your partner while holding your hands. There is no set order of patterns , and that’s why salsa can literally be danced together with everyone around the world.
To achieve this, the partner work is based on certain leadership techniques (for the gentlemen) and techniques of following (for the ladies). The first thing to learn when you want to dance salsa is the common language between leading and following to dance in unison. If the technique of leading or following is gradually mastered, you can supplement your salsa with turns, dips and tricks or combinations of the above variations.
