Beginner Salsa Dancing: The 7 Building Blocks for Everything
1. Basic Steps
We’ll show you 4 salsa basics (although there’s more). Get comfortable shifting your weight with these easy salsa steps, coordinating your weight shifts to the timing, and learning how to lead and follow the transitions between them.
2. Right Turn
A basic single turn to the follow’s right. This is the first turn you learn and it sets you up for learning cross body lead outside turns and multiple turns.
3. Left Turn
A basic single turn to the follow’s left. The second turn you learn so you can go both ways. This sets you up for cross body lead inside turns.
4. Cross Body Lead
The foundational move to this linear style of salsa, where the lead gives the follow the line of dancing allowing her to cross in front and arrive at the other side.
5. Hesitation / Block / Check
You stop or block the follow’s movement and send her back in the other direction. You’ll use this concept a ton as you advance.
6. New York Walk
A variation of the cross body lead where the follow pivots to the right instead of the left to finish the move.
7. Change of Place / Enchufa
The simplest way for the lead and follow to switch positions.
Almost everything in linear salsa is built-off these 7 easy salsa moves.
