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