The Copa… Simple yet effective! 🙂 You will see this move used in Latin clubs all over the place!
1. We begin with the Open Break to build up a bit of connection and some momentum between partners.
2. The leader then uses this momentum to swing the follower into her ‘copa’ position.
Tip: Notice the way Jayson is using his right hand to clearly communicate a ‘stop’ as Hannah steps into the Copa. If this lead doesn’t happnen the followers will shoot straight through the leaders frame and out the other side creating an inside turn instead!
3. From here the follower simply rolls out away from the leader ending up in dance postion in double hand hold ready to salsa on!
