SALSA SUELTA - sample clip
video type: Demonstration
runtime: 42 Minutes
location: Havana, Cuba
producer: Boogalu Productions
Salsa Suelta means "loose salsa" - salsa danced without a partner. Similar to rueda de casino, salsa suelta is initiated when people want to party and dance together as a larger group. But instead of dancing in a circle as in rueda, salsa suelta is danced in lines.
This DVD features Cuban style salsa suelta inspired from the dance culture of the barrios of Havana. The moves have evolved from a variety of Cuban dance traditions including rumba, orisha dance, son, cha cha cha, mambo, casino, plus the more modern influences of timba and hip hop.
The steps, routines, and changes are initiated by a leader who can direct the action using a variety of techniques including: calling out the name of the moves - hand gestures - and demonstrating with their body. Leaders repeat the steps and moves long enough for followers to catch on. Followers imitate what the leader is doing and change steps when the leader changes.
