Salsa suelta ("loose salsa"), or suelta, is a form of dancing to salsa music. Though the term technically describes any instance of salsa being danced without touching a partner, it is normally used to refer to a type of line dancing. As in casino rueda, there is often a leader who calls out names of set moves or simply dances a move for the rest of the group to follow. The dance moves may be borrowed from dances related to salsa, from jazz and hip-hop to rumba and orisha.[1] Suelta is also commonly danced to reggaetón.
