In this advanced lesson we are introducing a string of moves with the copa. This will require you to have a deliberate lead i.e. make sure you know what you are doing. Take your time and when practicing on your own start with a slower salsa song, then work your way up to some faster salsa dura songs. Enjoy!
This is an advanced move that requires a lot of practice and perfect timing to execute. It is advisable to lead the double turn a little early in order to set up for the copa. Please review our Double Turn video. Enjoy!
This move starts with a Cross Body Lead with two inside turns (aka left hand turns); on the second turn the follower goes into a right arm hammerlock. This is a great move to add a little dynamicism to your dancing. Enjoy!
This is a great combo which focuses on the right hand turn. Make sure you pay attention to switching of hands. Remember that your end goal is to look as smooth as possible. Master this move before moving on. Enjoy!
