In our dance workshop so far we have learned the basic steps of salsa and bachata so that we may dance with our friends whenever we wish — in the hallway, on the streets, at home, or at a fiesta. We have delved into the origins of salsa and bachata and their differing styles in Spanish-speaking countries and within the United States.
