Salsa is a syncretic dance form with origins from the Cuban Son (circa 1920s) and Afro-Cuban dance.  It is generally associated with the salsa music style, although it may be danced using other types of tropical music.

Bands of these countries took their music to Mexico City in  the era of the famous films of that country.Salsa has many different influences. It is the result of a musical evolution of various Latin and Afro - Caribbean rhythms.

Salsa is normally a partner dance, although there are forms such as a line dance form where the dancers dance individually and also round dance form where multiple couples exchange partners in a circle. Salsa can be improvised in a freestyle manner or performed with a set routine.

Salsa is a popular social dance throughout South America as well as in North America, Europe, Australia, and some countries in Asia and the Middle East.

Salsa dances are commonly held in night clubs, ballrooms, restaurants, and outside, especially if part of an outdoor festival. Salsa dancing is an international dance that can be found in most metropolitan cities in the world.
