Learn how to do the cross body lead styled salsa step in this Howcast dance video with expert Jorday Rivera.


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. Now this is the basic with a cross body lead, the styled version with music, face your partners. Now, we're gonna break down the cross body lead with the basic, the styled version. So we're gonna face our partners. We're doing a regular, basic dip. We're gonna go and one, two, three, five six, seven. Now the only difference is that instead of going back, straight back on your five, six, seven, ladies all your doing is cutting. So you're gonna go five, twist, seven. One more time, it's over here, feet together, we're gonna go from the top. Basic and one, two, three, five, six, seven, cross, two, three, five, six, seven, cross, two, three, oh pretty much I'm swiveling my body. Cross, two, three, five, six, seven. One, two, three, five, twist your body. One, two, three, five six, seven, one, two, three, hold, six, seven. And that's a basic with a cross body lead styled, with little twist.
