Salsa is a very popular and playful social partner-dance with strong influences from Latin America, particularly Cuba and Puerto Rico. Salsa is danced all over the world, and there are many different styles.
In salsa a dancer shifts their weight by stepping, the upper body remains level and nearly unaffected by the weight changes. Weight shifts cause the hips to move. Arm and shoulder movements are also incorporated. Arms are used by the "lead" dancer to communicate or signal the "follower," either in "open" or "closed" position.
