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