About Salsa(CASINO & RUEDA) –  Cuban style Salsa is the style that is most like the Salsa done in Cuba, where the dance has its roots. Cuban style dancers don’t tend to do fast, multiple spins. In addition, the movement of the partners in this style tends to be circular as opposed to linear. When Cuban moves are danced by one couple on the dance floor, that is referred to as Cuban Style.  If those moves are done by a group in a circle, that is referred to as Rueda de Casino.
