The era of the Buena Vista Social Club in the 1920s put Són Cubano on the world stage and the traditional countryside dance known as Són Montuno has since evolved into a modern piece of Cuban culture. Today, Són Contemporanio and Són Urbano are both variations on the traditional, with world-class Cuban bands and musicians creating new Són music and Són fusions to date.

Són is an upbeat and lively partner dance and is traditionally elegant, precise, controlled, smooth, and has its own unique tricks known as “tornillos”. It is danced contra-tiempo and connects both musically and as a dance to Salsa, Cha Cha Cha and Cuban Rumba (Yambú).
