– Cuban salsa is a very dynamic dance. This is the kind of salsa where la ‘Rueda’ is danced (a dance that has couples form a circle and dance in a synchronised manner and the women go from one male dancer to the next). This style of salsa involves a lot of ” walking ” 

– Puerto Rican salsa  is much slower and sensual. There are many different choreographies. Aesthetically, it is the type of salsa which is closest to ballroom dancing.

A bit of history

– The choreography of Cuban salsa was born in dance clubs and schools around Cuba.

– Puerto Rican salsa, comes from Mambo (which is why it is also called « salsa-mambo » in the United States), and it was invented by the Latin American community in the United States.
