You will initiate the dancing by facing directly towards your partner and by maintaining the eye contact. Do not forget that in salsa men are always the main leads and women have to follow them.
In typical salsa dance there are only two steps involved one is the back step and the other one is the front step. The most important point in such dance is keeping your posture straight or else your steps will not portray elegance and sophistication.
Get in the position before the music starts. To get into the right position, have her right hand in your left hand and put right hand at her back. Place your partner’s left hand on your shoulder.
As the music begins, with the step timing means synchronizing music with the steps you take, place your left foot forward and then with the movement of beats bring it back.
Then in the similar manner, take the left foot back and then bring it back at the previous position.
The same step will be taken with the right foot, but by keeping sync with the music.
Women have to follow the man and do what he has been doing. By following the similar steps mentioned you gracefully rock each step which you take.
