How would you describe the difference in hip action and technique between ballroom mambo and social salsa dancing? I know the technique of how I move my hips when I dance salsa socially, but I do not have an extensive background in ballroom dancing. I know what differences I observe from watching and dancing with people who have a ballroom background, but perhaps some of you can speak on a more technical level of what is happening in ballroom that doesn't or shouldn't happen in social salsa. The social Latin dance community that I am apart of (and Latinos in particular) tend to look down on people who dance at the club trying to use ballroom hips instead of dancing with "social hips." Do any other social salseros find this to be the case as well, or no? I personally find that I dislike the ballroom aesthetic in the club as well. I would be interested to know what others think.
