Street Latin


Street Latin includes Mambo, Merengue, Salsa, and Lambada. These dances are dubbed Street Latin because they evolved from the street dances in Latin America.

These Street Latin dances resulted from centuries of dance evolution, brought about by economic, social and political changes. It originated in the ports of Cuba during the colonization of the Spaniards, who imported slaves from Africa. Bringing with them their culture, the Africans introduced their rhythmic dance styles to the Caribbean, giving birth to Afro-Latin dance hybrids like Cha Cha, Mambo and Rumba.

Street Latin has risen to the status of world dancing. People from all cultures are relating to it, there are in fact more Salsa clubs in major cities like Los Angeles, New York or London than in its historical homes like Cuba and Puerto Rico.

Street Latin has an addictive quality inherent in rhythm which fuels the desire to become part of it and express it physically.
