Right and Left Turn Variations

Add intricacy, musicality and style to your simple right and left turns by trying out some of the tricks that I show you in this video.

By adding simple tricks and variations to your steps within your basic right and left turns, you can take your dancing to the next level. Don't get caught up in trying to learn the most complicated footwork out there. Just start by adding things to the movements and techniques you already KNOW!

If you train what you already know, you are forming a strong base of technical movement from which creativity can blossom. I hope you enjoy these simple variations and that you find them useful to your own dance expression. Learn them, change them, recreate them, and make them your own.

Thanks for stopping by! And let me know how this went for you in the comments below!



Put some bounce in your Salsa with PACHANGA!

I have been getting a lot of requests for Pachanga videos, so here is one to start with. In this video I go over how to prep the pachanga step from your basic salsa step. The KEY is to not skip the preparation with your hips on the 8 beat so that you can hit the first pachanga step on 1. If you can remember that you are well on your way to pachanga success!

The most important thing to remember when you are learning pachanga is to NOT let yourself get frustrated. Pachanga is a hard thing to learn, but I promise one day it will just CLICK and you will say to yourself, OH MY GOSH I GET IT! So, just keep practicing, because it just takes time. 

Feel free to ask me any questions or any requests! 

Until next time dancers!
