Behind the Back


Some steps you need to be well very comfortable with before tackling the salsa Behind the Back are:

Cross Body Lead

Open Break

Double Spins

Handkerchief and Cuddle

180 Degree Cross Body Lead

The Behind the back is then, more or less, threading these other salsa steps together.

Note: Notice that the leader changes hands after the Open Break, this is important so don’t skip it! 🙂

Note: The leader must ‘fake’ once he turns his back to the follower, this means he is not moving his feet at all for an entire count of Quick Quick Slow.
