Salsa Dance Lesson : Salsa at the Disco

Posted on about 8 years ago

Episode 5 : Salsa At The DiscoAnother quick episode of addicted2salsa podcast. Today we show you how to perform the famous "Salsa Disco" dance move using different amounts of spin. A lot of dancers get caught up in the fact about knowing very little moves, but in reality, by adding doubles and triples in their current salsa dance combination - they become almost new.

There is a little known fact to most salsa dance beginners that when follows learn to spin well, they'll fall in love with it. Follows love a challenge, and if you can start leading double and triple spins well - you should do so. They will find you more fun to dance with because you make it more challenging. For ladies who would like to improve their spinning, you may want to check out these salsa tip articles on spinning.

Note: For the 'Disco' move, pointing like John Travolta is optional.

[Updated] I have added annotations to the YouTube version to showcase how dancing On2 fits better with the cues/hits in the music. Hopefully this helps a few of you out there see how dancing on On2 timing helps makes moves fit better with the instruments of a song: Salsa At the Disco - YouTube with Annotations . This is for informational purposes as always (no mean emails please :-) ).

The song used in the video is : Consolacion by Roberto Roena y Su Apollo Sound
