Salsa World Champions and Australia’s Got Talent finalists Sharon McCristal and Juan Carlos Ospina Sanchez created a special salsa performance for Ci2015. Salsa can be traced to Cuban Son (1920s) and Afro-Cuban dance, or more particularly Afro-Cuban Rumba. Today, Salsa is essentially danced to Cuban popular dance music which now enjoys a global audience. Salsa has evolved into several different styles: Columbian (Cali), Cuban (e.g., Casino), Los Angeles (LA) and New York (Mambo). All styles celebrate the joy and passion of salsa music and Latin culture.
