Show Off Latin Dance Moves for Guys

Watch and learn how guys can show off in Latin dance in this Howcast dance video.

Henry: Hi guys, it’s Henry and Ashley. I’m going to show you one last video of how to show off in the Latin club. This time for the guys, okay? So the guys are going to be moving your legs, so we’re going to show you. Here we go.

Ashley: Let’s demonstrate.

Henry: This is how it goes. Basic step in salsa. Five, six, seven. One, two, three. Five, six, seven. One, two, three. Five, six, seven, and clap. So let’s break it down for you, yes? So I did not this guys, all I did is moveing my legs. What you’re going to do is instead of setting up the lady to make her show, you’re actually going to stop her from moving, and then you show off, yeah? And they’re gonna start smiling when you do that because they do not expect it. So, this is how we go. We do a basic step. One, two, three. Five, six, seven. One, two, on the three what you’re going to do guys is you’re going to embrace the lady. So you’re actually using your entire forearm. You press against the lady, and she goes, "Oh wait." And then at the same time you compress the lady with your right arm. So she feels these two frames that completely frame, stopping her from moving. Okay?

So from there you start your combo. The combo’s going to start with the right foot. Okay? But let’s get it one more time. So you do one, two, three. Five, six, seven. One, two, three. Here my right foot is three. So I do this, I tap with my right. Tap, tap, tap. Okay? From here guys, you’re going to bring your right leg and you make sure that your hips are not turning to your left so you can bring the right leg on top of the lady. And don’t want to kick them, it’s just an illusion, yeah? You will now basically hug them with your right leg, yeah? If it is too complicated, you can just do it right here, yes? But if you are flexible, you can go up there. And then you want to open, tap with the left, tap with the right, come back, and go back to the basic step.

Let me show one more time faster. So you go, one, two, three. Five, six, seven. One, two, three. Five, six, seven. You hug the lady on the one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, and one. Yes? So everything becomes syncopated. So it’s like fancy footwork a little fast. Sort of like Yushu. But it’s really fun when you get it. You also can do it slow. So you can just do it at your own pace. So let’s show one more time. One, two, three. Five, six, seven. One, two, three. Five, six, seven. One, two, three. Five, six, seven, and one.

Ashley: And ladies, you’re just enjoying the moment. You’re just enjoying letting him show off and you’re taking a break. Make sure that you don’t collapse in your body, but you hold that, because now he needs your support this time. And guys, just be careful, as Henry was saying, when you go to do the little kick around, don’t try and pull her in.

Henry: Yeah, don’t do this.

Ashley: There’s no reason to do that. Just a little tap. It’s the illusion. Okay? Illusion.

Henry: Exactly. And support the ladies when you do that, you feel how the guy is moving? Let him show off or keep holding him, right? So just, you know, be our support. Just for a little bit. Just for this 30 seconds of the song.

Ashley: Then say, "OK. You’re done."

Henry: Yeah. Let’s start with the music. Five, six, basic step. And one, two, three, five, six, seven. One, two, three, five, six, seven. One, two, five, six, seven. And one, two, five, six, seven. Show ’em one more time. Five, six, seven. One, two, three, five, six, seven. One, two, five, six, seven, and one. A little slower now, okay? One, two, three, five, six, seven. One, two, three, five, six, seven. One, two, three, five, six, seven. And one, two, three, five, six, seven, and one. I know once the way you guys will show up in the Latin club with your partner.

Ashley: For the men.

Henry: For the man.
