Types of Dance
Cha Cha
 There are two sources of the dances: one Spanish and the
other African. Although the main growth was in Cuba, there
were similar dance developments which took place in other
Caribbean islands and in Latin America generally.
 The "rumba influence" came in the 16th century with the
black slaves imported from Africa. The native Rumba folk
dance is essentially a sex pantomime danced extremely
fast with exaggerated hip movements and with a sensually
aggressive attitude on the part of the man and a defensive
attitude on the part of the woman. The music is played with
a staccato beat in keeping with the vigorous expressive
movements of the dancers. Accompanying instruments
include the maracas, the claves, the marimbola, and the
 Rumba is the spirit and soul of Latin American music and
dance. The fascinating rhythms and bodily expressions
make the Rumba one of the most popular ballroom
 Casino Dance is internationally known as Salsa.
The name Casino appeared in the early 1960s in
Havana. As a pastime and entertainment for most
Cubans, Casino became a predominant rhythm in
Havana. It gave birth to Rueda de Casino, which
originated in Patricio Lumumba beach club (former
Nautico) in Miramar. This form of circular dance
was the creation of dancers from Regla and the
Guaracheros de Regla.
 The Merengue is the national dance of the Dominican
Republic, and also to some extent, of Haiti, the neighbour
sharing the island.
 Partners hold each other in closed position and do walks
sideways or circle each other, in small steps. They can
further switch to a double handhold position and do
separate turns never letting go each other's hands. During
these turns they may twist and tie their handold into
intricate pretzels. Other choreography is possible.Although
the tempo of the music may be frantic, the upper body is
kept majestic and turns are slow, typically four beats/steps
per complete turn.
 Salsa is not easily defined. Who invented salsa? The
Cubans, Puerto Ricans? Salsa is a distillation of many
Latin and Afro-Caribbean dances. Each played a large part
in its evolution.
 Salsa is similar to Mambo in that both have a pattern of six
steps danced over eight counts of music. The dances
share many of the same moves. In Salsa, turns have
become an important feature, so the overall look and feel
are quite different form those of Mambo. Mambo moves
generally forward and backward, whereas, Salsa has more
of a side to side feel.
 Salsa is danced on music with a recurring eight-beat
pattern, i.e. two bars of four beats. Salsa patterns typically
use three steps during each four beats, one beat being
skipped. However, this skipped beat is often marked by a
tap, a kick, a flick, etc. Typically the music involves
complicated percussion rhythms and is fast with about
180 beats per minute
Cha Cha
 Originally known as the Cha-Cha-Cha. Became
popular about 1954. Cha Cha is an offshoot of the
Mambo. In the slow Mambo tempo, there was a
distinct sound in the music that people began
dancing to, calling the step the "Triple" Mambo.
Eventually it evolved into a separate dance, known
today as the Cha Cha.
 The dance consists of three quick steps (triple
step or cha cha cha) and two slower steps on the
one beat and two beats.
 The Samba originated in Brazil. It was and
is danced as a festival dance during the
street festivals and celebrations. First
introduced in the U.S.A in a Broadway play
called "Street Carnival" in the late twenties.
The festive style and mood of the dance has
kept it alive and popular to this day. Samba
is a fun dance that fits most of today's
popular music.
 The flamenco came from Andalusia in what is now Spain,
influenced heavily by the local gypsy population, the
Gitanos. Large amounts of the musical stylings and dance
movements of flamenco come from the Jewish tradition, as
well as from Moorish culture.
 Flamenco dancing is an incredibly emotive dance style,
with the dancer always striving to express his or her
emotions through movement. Sharp movements and facial
expressions play a greater role in flamenco dancing than in
many other style of dance, reflecting this desire to convey
the deepest feelings one is experiencing. While flamenco
dancing, the dancer may clap their hands, kick their feet,
snap castanets (small handheld percussive instruments),
or jerk their body abruptly to demonstrate the desired
emotion. At the same time, losing control is never an option
in flamenco dancing, and this passionate display is always
tempered by sustaining the highest levels of grace and
precision in movements.
