How to Do a Salsa Back Step

Learn the salsa back 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.
You know, this is called a basic with a ""back step"". Remember, it is called a back. It is very very important for the males which are the leaders in the dance.
Now, we are going to do the breakdown of a basic with the back step. So we are going to start of course, like always, with that basic starting with the right leg. So we are going end, basic, one, two, three, hold, six, seven.
Once you're in this position, you are going to lead and so with your right leg.
You open up to the right side you go end, one, back, step, two, back, step, three, back, step, four, back, step.
One, two, three, five, six, seven, open, back, step.
One more time, I am going to end it, with the basic and forward, two, tree, five, six, seven, that's the breakdown of a basic with the back step.
This is very important for the leads.
