Latin American Dance
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     Everyone loves to listen to music and dance. But not all of those dances were started in the United States. Some dances were started in other countries. Latin American countries have many special dances.
 
2     Ballroom Tango is a dance that started in Buenos Aires. People first started dancing it in the late 1800s. Parts of it probably came from a different dance that people were already doing. In the 1920s, it was a very popular dance. It was done in ballrooms in Europe and the United States. It is a very nice set of steps with sad music. It also has a tango beat. People still dance it today.
 
3     The Salsa is another Latin American Dance. Parts of Salsa were also taken from other dances. It has a lot of jazz in it. Salsa is actually Spanish for hot sauce. The dance has a pattern of six steps. It is also danced in the United States today.
