Ok, so I thought I would post some of my favorite Salsa dancers up next! As you can see it’s completely different than what you might find in most clubs, as this is Cuban salsa and not the American “slot style” ball-roomy stuff that is so prevalent here in the States.
Note how the dancers travel around each other, interact with each other and generally seem to have found a way to make the dance playful? This is what I aspire to in my Salsa and I’ve tried to bring the same energy to Tango as well, but it’s difficult at best to even smile at ones partner at times…I wonder if that has to do with the music??
Well items of note in this video:
See how she moves? Take note of her hip movement at 32sec. NOT NORMAL! You don’t see that often in the USA. Amazing! I love her!!! And well I’m lucky enough and will say it here, my partner moves like that…
Check out his Leg Over move at 51 sec. !!! Very cool, don’t try this move if your legs are less than feet long or if your partner has short arms, or if you are not flexible enough to pull it off, or if you don’t have the balance for it, or if your partner minds being kicked in public…just make sure to try this at home first!
Can you say, “Damn!”? see COMBO at 1:08 – 1:16??
And last but no least, my favorite part of the video: Two Guys and One Girl! 3:15 – end.
I have tried this it’s too much fun just goofing around with two friends trying to come up with combos that work it can make an otherwise fun night of dancing into a really fun night of dancing. You’ve seen it…Now go try it.
