A while back out local Cuban salsa classes were forced to close. The nearest salsa classes were a Cross body class. Myself and few others joined this class a few did not even want to try. After a month I am the only one who is still dancing with this class, they others either don't dance or have to travel much further which they don't do as much. My point being that they just do not seem to like the cross body style of salsa, they seem to find it too "formal" or just say they don't like it. What does everybody else think? I personally am enjoying it very much. While similar but different I have enjoyed the challenge of learning a new style and think it enhances my dancing by being able to dance both styles. Dancing socially after the classes and being able to throw in the odd Cuban move does seem to go down well. So I can't really understand the dislike of the styles. As for me whether it be Cuban or Cross Body I am still dancing Salsa which I love doing.
