Cuban-style salsa, also known as Casino, is a form of Latin dance that originated in Cuba. Dancing Casino is an expression of popular social culture; Many Cubans consider casino a part of their social and cultural activities centering around their popular music.
The origins of the name Casino are “Casinos Deportivos”, the dance halls where a lot of social dancing was done among the better off, white Cubans during the mid-20th century and onward.
Historically, Casino traces its origin as a partner dance from Cuban Son, fused with partner figures and turns adopted from North American Jive. What gives the dance its life is the understanding and spontaneous use of the rich Afro-Cuban dance vocabulary within a “Casino” dance. A “casino” dancer will frequently improvise references to other dances, integrating movements, gestures and extended passages from the folkloric and popular heritage. This is particularly true of African descended Cubans. Such improvisations might include extracts of rumba, dances for African deities, the older popular dances such as Cha Cha Cha and Danzon as well as anything the dancer may feel.
