What is Salsa dancing?

Salsa dancing

This dance form is an example of a partnered dance. In classes a choreographed sequence is generally taught, but in practice it is an improvised dance. (Editor).

Salsa is the collective term used to describe a variety of dances from various hispanic sources. The diversity of styles that exist are such that dancers often ally themselves to one style to the exclusion of all others.

It is generally danced on six beats in every eight. This means that on the fourth and eighth beats no step is taken which gives the dance a staccato like form.
