Salsa is a dance much like the food for which it is named. There are numerous flavors and countless ingredients all of which are all inspired by culture and personal taste. Much like the food, there is no right or wrong way. There's Los Angeles Style, New York Style, street style, ballroom style, and many other styles. Salsa Casino is uniquely Cuban style and features its own distinctive moves which set it apart from other forms of Salsa. SALSAtlanta, the city's largest gathering of Salsa Casino enthusiasts celebrated its 10 year anniversary this past weekend, December 11 through December 13 at Georgia Tech's Student Center. The three day event included parties, workshops, performances, live music, and dancing.
The event was planned by SALSAtlanta's founder, Julian Meija. Julian is originally from Colombia, but discovered Salsa Casino while living in Miami. He found Salsa Casino to be more natural than other forms he had danced before, "Salsa is from street dancing and I like Cuban movement,"says Julian, "I feel that Salsa Casino has a more organic connection to the music than other types of Salsa."While working for Delta, Julian moved to Atlanta, bringing his love of Casino with him. At first, Salsa was barely known in Atlanta, let alone Cuban Salsa. Julian was determined to change this. He began with a small class of six students, all of whom happened to be Salsa instructors. Little by little, as each instructor took on more students, Salsa Casino's popularity blossomed and SALSAtlanta was formed. Within 10 years, SALSAtlanta went from Julian's class of six instructors to a nationally recognized Casino group. That very group attracted attendants and instructors from all over the country to celebrate its creation.
