This dance originating from the Dominican Republic is considered the easiest and most popular amongst beginners. The energy of the music is also very up tempo and has an easy way of getting you addicted to this beautiful dance. There are legends this dance was born out of a wounded crippled President that danced dragging one leg and so everyone imitated him out of politeness (or cluelessness). Take a listen of this sensual romantic dancing music:
Although the original Bachata style was developed in the Dominican Republic, Bachata formed its own style in North America and Europe which is considered the most popular style in the world! This style is called the traditional style of Bachata and ETOWN SALSA is teaching you this sexy sensual dance today!
The traditional dance of CUMBIA comes from Colombia where the women wear long dresses that they hold up and the men with their custom cowboy style hats. The social partnering version of CUMBIA has two major styles , the Mexican "Tejano" style and the North American/European style which is the most popular style seen in Latin nightclubs. ETOWN SALSA teaches this in a simplified manner with the typical toe kick in its purest form. Here is some music for you to enjoy but better yet, if you learn the dance, you will appreciate this music even more!
Chacha was born out of a slower tempo'd Mambo that social dancers wanted to dance to but found the rhythm too slow for Mambo dancing. Chacha is considered one of the more difficult dances much like the New York Salsa on2 (Mambo) dance. The rhythms of Chacha are so directly related to the rhythms of Mambo (Salsa) that for beginners, its a great way to use these tempos to learn combinations and patterns. Give it a try and see!
