I‘ve heard a lot of talk about Cuban, Cross Body, LA, New York & Cali but to me all salsa is the same – it’s about how the salsa music makes you want to move and lead your partner so that you both dance on the spur of the musical moment! When I say salsa music I mean music with the underlying 3-2 clavé because without that it does not inspire the quick-quick-slow way of moving that makes a dance become a dream!
Also, as my basic salsa steps do not include a break which can be felt by my partner the difference between On1 & On2 disappears and as I‘m a good lead the need to dance in line as the cross body purists insist becomes something I might do if the floor isn’t too crowded and there’s a space available but wherever the lady arrives I will arrive the right place for the next move! 😉
