Salsa consists of a group of Afro-Caribbean Latin rhythms fused with jazz and other musical genres. Salsa is usually danced in pairs, but it is possible to dance alone. Fixed steps are learned from basic choreographies to ensure the best learning.
Zumba is a physical activity that combines aerobic exercises to the rhythm of different styles of Latin music (salsa, merengue, bachata, samba, tango, cumbia, reggaeton…) and it was invented in the late nineties by the Colombian Alberto Perez.
