How to do the 180° Cross Body Lead with Turn

In this episode of Addicted2Salsa, we go back to the basics to help you learn how to do a 180 Cross-Body Lead with a Turn (*a few others call this the 'Coca-Cola' move). This move is a lot simpler than it may appear. We first start off refreshing you what a Cross-Body Lead with a Turn looks like and from there add-on the extra dance steps required to do a half-revolution. Getting the 180 degree cross body lead will help build the salsa framework for you to execute the 360 cross body lead - which will show you in a future episode.

How to Recession Proof your Salsa Lifestyle

Kelly Rice over at Ritmo Bello wrote an article providing 5 tips on how to dance on a budget during tough economic times. While I leave it to you to check out her article for the details, she mentions: taking group classes, getting involved with the community, practicing everywhere, watching others dance and setting up a trade agreement (bartering).<br/><br/>Here in San Diego, on average, a group class costs around $10-$13 and cover costs for a club are $8-$10. If you then add the micro-expenses related to salsa (gasoline, bar drinks (water), clothing and an extra shower a day, etc) - it adds up very quick if you go out dancing several times a week.<br/><br/>Knowing that fewer students are able to spend that much in salsa dance classes, paying for gas, parking and cover costs at the club, I decided to add my two cents to help you 'recession proof' your salsa lifestyle. While I am not an economist or financial adviser, here is my list of ways to help your salsa lifestyle while on a budget....

Salsa Dance on Facebook

I have seen several more salsa dance groups and companies get on the Facebook bandwagon. This brings a lot of excitement because it allows people from different salsa scenes to find one another using the tools that we use for our social habits. Since, using these tools have grown in popularity, I'd like to just remind everyone of our groups so that they (cough..cough..) grow and become more (cough..cough..) popular. :-)...

Salsa Dancing Steps for Beginners

So, here we are again with a simple salsa dancing move for you to mix it in to your other moves.
