In this move Alain and Annick perform a simple combination composed of right turns and cross body leads.

I could say that 80% of salsa move are build with this two basic movements. It comes a time when you don’t have to think about your movements any more, you just do one more right turn, one more cross body lead, you become less conscious and you focus more on having fun.

Dance Conmigo offers private classes in Montreal.
