DEFINITION OF SALSA “ON 1” VS. SALSA “ON 2”
“On1 Salsa timing is commonly known as L.A. style, which has often focused on sharp hits in the music and flashy moves.
On2 Salsa timing is commonly known as New York style. It is known for its more suave feel and turn patterns/combinations.
Put simply, On 1 feels faster and more staccato, whereas On 2 feels more laid back and smooth.” (Credit: The Dance Dojo)
Salsa On 2 is currently the most common form of social Salsa dancing around the world. People who learn Salsa On 2 first have a much easier transition to learning Salsa On 1, which is why we teach it first. Good news for already On 1 dancers is that it is not difficult to transition to On 2 with the right instruction, and the versatility of knowing both makes for an amazing dancer!!
