2 dance styles


Popularized in the 1960s salsa dance was primarily developed by Puerto Ricans and Cubans living in New York in the 1960s and 1970s. Different regions of Latin America (including countries in the Caribbean) and the USA have distinct salsa styles: Puerto Rican, NY, LA, Colombian, Cuban.

It is a latin dance where the leader takes the follower through a series of spins and turn patterns to music. (Partnerwork classes, spin classes) Salsa can also be danced solo (footwork, styling, shines, body movement). We differenciate 2 major dance styles: NYC and LA salsa are danced in a more linear way (we call this Crossbody Salsa), while Cuban and Colombian styles are danced in a more circular fashion.
At elSol spring edition you will experience mainly Salsa NYC style. That means “salsa on2” or “mambo”.

Salsa means power, energy, flow, musicality, speed, connection between the dancers and their individual connection with the music.


Bachata dance originated in the 1960s in the Dominican Republic. Its basic step is called Box Step and it is danced on a pattern of a square. Currently bachata is danced all over the world where everyone adds their own influence. Bachata has absorbed zouk, contemporary, salsa and street dance elements. The modern Bachata Sensual or Bachata Moderna basic version is is counted to 4 -3 steps and tap from one side to the other. In more a advanced version partners dance a lot of sensual moves including waves, head rolls, leadable body isolations wi as well as turn patterns and turns.

At elSol spring edition we bring to you mainly bachata moderna, bachata sensual and bachata fusion.

Only 21 carefullys selected artists.

We always bring a new name to Poland, in 2023: Jessica Quiles, Fadi Fusion, David&Ines, DJ Pablo G. We select specialists whose classes will make you progress.
