PostSubject: Salsa Moves   Sat Nov 25, 2006 5:13 pm

This topic will be focusing on salsa moves that have been found on the Internet, or thought up by our members.

Feel free to post your own "custom" moves here, but please ensure that the moves are described clearly so that everyone know's what you mean when you refer to a certain move.

As we move progressively towards producing more techniques, the team would also look to be able to provide a video presentation of the moves in order to allow the readers to better view the moves.


* Count is done according to the dance floor for ON1 steps. Therefore, leaders (usuallly the gents) would step left leg forward on 1, and followers (usually ladies) with right foot back on 1.

Here would be some common terminologies used in the descriptions:
Home position
On dancing ON1 style, the home position is normally on the 4th and 8th count (on a 6-count) basic. The dancer would usually have both leads close to each other.

PostSubject: Simple Turn   Sat Nov 25, 2006 5:23 pm

Simple Turn
A Simple turn is what it's name implies - SIMPLE.
How the move is done:

For followers
On the 5th count, the follower would step forward.
On the 6th count, the follower would pivot on the LEFT foot 180 degrees and step with the RIGHT foot.
On the 7th count, the follower would then pivot on the RIGHT foot and turn 180 degrees to face the front again.
On the 8th count, the follower would rest at home position.

For leaders
On the 1st count, the leader would step forward.
On the 2nd count, the leader would pivot on the LEFT foot 180 degrees and step with the RIGHT foot.
On the 3rd count, the leader would then pivot on the RIGHT foot and turn 180 degrees to face the front again.
On the 4th count, the leader would then rest at home position.

How To Lead the Follower into a Simple Turn
The simple turn is indicated on the 3rd count by the leader. BY the 3rd count, the leader would need to raise the followers hand to the following:
- The hand should be held 90 degrees in front of the follower, and not to the left or right side.
- The hand should not be too close or too far from the forehead of the follower. A good way to judge an appropriate distance would be to clench your fist, and extend your thumb and pinky outwards. The distance of the hand from the forhead should be of that radius.
Both parties would be at rest on the 4th count at the home position. The follower would then proceed to do a simple turn on the 5th - 8th count.

IMPORTANT NOTE
For a SINGLE simple turn, the leader does not need to drive the follower. The leader will only provide a drive if the leader requires the follower to do MORE than ONE simple turn within the 3 counts.
