The Leader’s Steps

In this video we are referring to the leader’s steps when we describe the gentlemen’s steps.


Leaders: Aim to hold both of your followers hands for as long as possible with this step. Only let go when you feel the followers body coming into contact with your right forearm. This gives you more control over where the follower is dancing and can help you to avoid collisions in crowded salsa clubs!

Haven’t been to a crowded salsa club before? Wednesday Nights at Casablabla is a good example of a very crowded salsa dance floor along with these other salsa clubs here in Adelaide.


The Follower’s Steps

In this video we are referring to the follower’s steps when we describe the lady’s steps.


Followers: Although you may have done this step many times whilst following salsa it is important to dance as though you have no idea what is coming next. You are aiming to give connection to your partner and apply that slight bit of resistance during this step to make the whole pattern feel connected.

Just as we mentioned with the Walk Through in Beginner 1 salsa, turn as late as possible to add style and snap to your moves.
