Think of salsa as being danced by stepping on 3 consecutive beats of music and then pausing for 1 beat, and then repeating. The salsa step pattern can be thought of as rock step, together; rock step, together. Our dance teachers count salsa as quick, quick, slow; quick, quick, slow. Each quick count uses one beat of music, each slow count uses two beats of music. Depending on geographical location and how you hear and feel the music, salsa dancers may start on any beat of the measure. Most salsa dancers in Louisville start the dance on the first beat of the measure.
