Edwin: Guajira into bachata. We're going to start by holding the ladies in closed position. We're going to go one, two, three, four, five, six, seven and push back, three and wait. One more time. Nice and slow. Five, six, seven and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, we prep and back, tap and wait.

So the thing to notice and very important is that you have to lead the ladies back first, before you send them to the other side. We push back tap. Send them to the other side. We step. Here we just flash our foot. We're just showing off our foot here and we quickly switch to the other one. And we wait here. Now the time that we wait, we're going to count it out for you. Five, six, seven and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, one, two, three and five.

Daniela: For the ladies, we go basic. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven and here we just rock back. And with the same foot that's forward we step, step into foot and point and we hold. You can place your hand if you'd like. You can place it here. You can have it back, whatever styling you like. One more time for the ladies. Five, six, seven and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven and back two, three, point, point. Hold and one, two, three, four.

Edwin: What makes this step cool is that you have to hold at the end. We're going to go, push back and tap, wait, six, seven and one. It's going to make it a nice effect to hold that beat, so that people can see your pose. Nice and relaxed. Let's try this with music. On the other side and that is how you fuse guajira into bachata.
