Dance Classes Toronto- Latin Dance Styles

The major Latin dance styles are described below:-


The history of the Latin popular music known worldwide as “salsa” began centuries ago in the islands of the Spanish Caribbean, in a context of slavery and colonialism. Yet, it is inextricably tied to twentieth-century New York City and the growth of a thriving Latino community. Its distinctive polyrhythm and vocal and instrumental call-and-response identify the Afro-Caribbean roots of Latin music – traditional and contemporary, sacred and secular. Crossing international borders, Salsa is arguably the most popular dance style around today. The name may have been new, but the sound of salsa is rooted in the rich mix of cultures, races and rhythms that is New York Latin music.Find additional information at dance classes toronto.
