After writing the article 10 ways to become a great salsa dancer I learned from watching my kids that there is an 11th way that will help your salsa skills grow. So if you are interested in a bonus way to become a greater salsa dancer thanks to my kids, read on.
11) Lead without moving your feet
Well that makes no sense. How am I supposed to dance without moving my feet Jai? Work with me on this because I showcase this idea in class a lot. Stand in place grounded on the floor and lead your partner do various moves (on timing) across your body only using your core muscles and not your feet. Twist to right and left respectfully to guide your partner to the other side of your frame. This allows you to control spacing and feel the move all the way through without disconnecting the consistency of your lead. When you take away movement of your lower half you train the upper half to do the necessary work the follower needs to experience.
Tip. Confused? Come to my class.
