So it's more side to side than front and back when you're jogging , right ?
So let's try with the basic step 567 and 123 , 567 .
Good 123 and 567 .
So you want to think that your elbows are out , right ?
You don't want to be doing it right ?
So , oh yeah .
123 567123 , good .
So you're thinking that you're stepping on this imaginary line that you have on the floor .
So because of this exercise that we went through , I shouldn't be seeing turned in feet right ?
This looks very awkward , like checking my feet .
We don't want to dance like this and we don't want to have space between our legs , right ?
Does not look very feminine , right ?
All right , let's do the cross body lead to the count and a 123 , a 567 , a 123 , a 567 and again a 123567 , a 123 , a 567 .
Let's do your step right now .
So you're gonna go forward with the left , replace it on to the right , start turning to the left and then step side on your left leg .
So we did about a quarter turn here and then we're gonna do another quarter turn as we do kind of like a basic step actually .
So we're gonna go back on the right , continue turning , replace on the left and then close right foot to left foot .
So very important guys .
That you understand that you are basically turning uh half a turn throughout that whole cross body lead .
The first part , we turn about a quarter turn and then another quarter turn .
So I'm doing a full half a turn by the end of a cross body lead .
So let me show you one more time a little slower .
So again , I go forward , replace and as I replace , I start turning my body and then I step side with the left and now I'm doing like a basic step while the lady goes across , I go back uh and I start turning .
So I go back , replace and close .
Let's zoom in into your feed guys and 123 and 567 and again , 123 and 567 .
So you wanna step on this imaginary line , you have your toes pointing a little bit out just like this exercise just to get clear .
We are dancing New York style on two .
There's a lot of different styles , salsa styles .
So we're gonna start with our basic 123567 .
Then we're gonna do a Cuban or a rumble .
So you're gonna go 123567 .
All right .
Let's let's start right .
You tap your toe with to your left .
You bring all your weight up step 56 step .
So we got these 123567123 .
Moving on .
Ladies and a 123 and five and six and seven again and a 123 and five and six and seven .
Now let's talk about the lead and follow here .
So the first thing you want to note here when we do the cross buddy lead is the guys , you simply have to get out of the lady's way .
Yeah , that's the main lead .
That's like the first thing you need to do .
So when you're doing your steps here , making sure that you open up and you provide her this space now to go uh forward .
Uh and then the cross body lead is gonna work quite nicely .
Now , if I don't do this , let's watch this from another angle .
If I just kinda do this , the next step late is gonna go into my leg or they're gonna have to go around me which is very uncomfortable .
Uh and it's not , doesn't work at all , right .
So can we do that one more time ?
So basic .
123 567 .
Step all your weight with your right .
Tap your left like get something hot on the floor and you have to go up good then .
We nailed it nice .
All right after you do your rumble .
Traveling Cuban , you're gonna step front and side and back , side , right .
One 3567 .
So for a little flavor , you could bring arms , front side , back , side , front .
Yeah , I like those arms can you show that stuff again with those arms that was so cross one open up onto a three step 567 .
Also , if you want to add some extra flavor , you could do a body roll here .
Might let you handle the body roll .
So there's a lot of layers we can build from these basics .
Let me all right .
So let's try it from the top 67 and 123 go 6712356713567 .
Yes , nice .
I feel like I'm swimming back here .
I'm like gotta get the arms under control .
That's a good thing with salsa .
It's a workout but it's fun .
So one more time then we move on 567 .
Basic 12356 .
You wanna get into your hip quite a lot to get into your hip and let the guy and kind of wait for the guy to lead you across .
And again , 123 , Kim is gonna really get into her hip .
You can see she's kind of rotating her right hip back and that allows me now to feel her weight and then I can lead her across and she can feel exactly when I want her to go .
Let's show you another angle and 123 and 567123 and 567 .
And now we have a quick um styling tip as well .
Um This has to do with the man's uh left arm and lady's right arm .
So when we do the cross , but I need 123 right here .
What I can do is I can just kind of bring the arm down .
And then as a leader across , I bring it up again and that just looks cool .
And it feels nice to bring it down and then bring it up .
And again , 123 .
And this kind of also kind of feels good to kind of settle the girl into her hip like this .
So kinda lead her a little bit back , we can extend the arm and lower it and then this is kind of picking her up and kind of putting on the brakes .
So it also feels good .
It's not just styling .
So you can definitely do that .
Bringing the arm down on three and 567 .
Bringing it up again and 123 down 56 7-Up and again , 12 down 56 up .
Go 12356713567 .
Then you're gonna do a Suzie Q so gonna cross left right left , right left , right left .
Suzie Q let's just one time .
We're gonna do it for the whole bar .
So yeah , so you go 13567 then 1234567 .
Yeah , good cool .
Do it from our rumble from the rumble .
So we go 123567 .
Front side , back side front Suzie Suzie Suzie Q .
