THIS SATURDAY from 2PM to 4:30PM!2 hours of Cuban Dance with Steven Messina of Messina Dance Company!
Son is characterized by its upright ballroom-like posture, emphasis on presentation, and dancing to the percussion in a timing called "contratiempo" (the original version of "on2").
CUBAN CASINO (aka "Cuban Salsa")
When the younger generation danced son in Havana's casinos, they added more varied positioning, inside turns, and eventually the incorporation of elements from Afro-Cuban folkloric dances. Sometimes called "Cuban salsa," the true term from popular Cuban dancing originates from people's desire to "dance how they do in the casino."
