Soltinho was created in the 1940's in Brazil after a famous actor “Oscarito” danced rock and roll in a Brazilian movie. People started to copy his dancing at parties and balls and “Soltinho” was born! This name was created by Maria Antonieta, the great master of all masters of Brazilian dance in Rio de Janeiro.
It is a dance style with a mix of jive, lindy-hop, swing and foxtrot. It can be danced to many styles of music such as rock, fox or pop which makes it an easy style to dance at any party!
Soltinho is great fun for those who have always wanted to try rock and roll with a difference!
