home Tea & Talk: 'Salsa Dancing with Chinese Characteristics'

Salsa dancing is a relatively recent phenomenon in China. It started in Beijing in the early 2000s and is gradually growing and spreading to other cities without the aid of the mass media, and as a dance style is quite different from the social dances practiced in Latin America. What social, economic and political factors facilitated salsas insertion in China? Is this enthusiasm for salsa a result of the increasing commercial relationships between China and Latin America in the past decade, or is it due to the influence of "Dancing with the Stars"? What meanings does it convey to Chinese dancers?
