Salsa dance is characterized as a mixture of African, Caribbean and Eurpean styles with the elements of dance and music. The Spanish word salsa means a sauce prepared by mixing various spices.

It is a free style dance Latin dance which is based on improvisation. It does not require the fully use of the dance floor.

There are different styles of salsa in different parts of the world. Three of the most popular styles are: Cuban style, Puerto Rican style and Colombian style. However there are not sharp differences among the styles. A dancer who knows one style can easily dance in other styles because the basic steps and figures are almost the same.

Salsa is usually done by partners, but can be done without a partner or more than two people as well. The man is the guide in this dance and directs and rules the woman with hand movements.

The beginner dancer learn the basic steps first and then the combination figures. It requires the ability to carry out complex figures with the feet and it is vital to have steps according to the rhythm of the music. Therefore, students are taught primarily to catch the rhythm of the music.
