CALI STYLE SALSA
Cali style salsa is a type of salsa that is danced almost exclusively in the South American country of Colombia. It is known for its rapid and intricate footwork as well as the athletic lifts and tricks that are incorporated into their dancing.
Salsa On 1 LA-Style
On1 salsa, also known LA-Style salsa, is one the most common styles of salsa dancing around the world. On1 salsa dancing is so-called because dancers break forward on the first count of the measure (on 1).
Salsa On2 Style
On 2 salsa is a style of salsa where the dancers take their break step on the second beat of the measure (“on 2”), as opposed to the first beat, as in On1 salsa. Like On1 salsa, on 2 salsa is danced in a slot, as opposed to the more circular style of Cuban or Colombian salsa.
Bachata Tradicional y Sensual
Bachata is a dance from the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean islands. Both the music and the dance have been influenced by Cuban Bolero, the Merengue (also of Dominican Republic origin), Salsa and Cumbia.
Bachata music has four beats per measure. In Bachata dancing, the dancer takes three steps to four beats of music. As with Salsa, the step timing is three steps and then a one-beat pause. The knees are flexed on the steps. Given its humble origins, the steps are flat footed.
