Son is first and foremost a distinct music style that originated from east Cuba during the 19th century. During the 20th Century, it gradually gained popularity and turned from music and dance for the peasants, to a big hit in Havana’s ballrooms. Above all, you can summarize it in one word – Elegance. It is the music style that preceded and gave birth to Salsa (or better said casino) nowadays. Since then the popularity of Salsa grew and grew, while unfortunately, the popularity of Son declined. A Cuban Salsa dancer will learn and massively improve his/her leading/following skills if he/she chooses to dabble in Son. It’s an amazing learning experience that teaches one to appreciate many things we often neglect in Salsa: closed position, precision, simplicity courtesy and more…And the beautiful thing is that anything you learn in Son translates into Salsa almost directly. So if you want to to take your dancing further – Don’t hesitate and learn Son.
