How to Do a Half-Right Half-Left Turn Styled in Salsa Dance

Learn how to do a half-right, half-left turn styled from salsa dance expert Jorday Rivera in this Howcast dance video.

Hello, my name is Jorday Rivera, and I am an expert in salsa. I own two dance studios in Queens, New York. We’re going to be learning a progression of salsa moves so we can actually go out, practice, take it to the clubs, take it to a party, and you can show off all the great moves you learned.
This is called a ‘basic’ with a half-right, half left-styled. So we’re going to go and do this with music.

Now, we’re going to break down the ‘basic’ with a half-right and left turn. So we’re going to start with our right leg as usual with our ‘basic’. We’re going to go ‘basic’ and 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7… 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, ‘basic’, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7… 1, two arms up, 5, 6, 7… 1, 2, 3, 5, you’re still doing your basic steps, 1, 2, pivot, 5, 6, pivot… 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7… 1, 2, pivot, 5, 6, pivot, last time, 5, 6, 7… 1, 2, pivot, 5, 6, pivot… ‘basic’, 2, 3, hold, 6, 7.

And that was a ‘basic’ half-right and half-left turn styled.
