Follow these tips to fasttrack your progress

Salsa Dancing Tip #1: Always look at your partner's face when dancing.

Tip #2: For a more flowing movement, the follower should carry her own weight and not lean on the leader.

Tip #3: Never step on the heel first, you should always step on the ball of the foot, regardless of the direction you are heading.

Tip #4: The faster the music the smaller the steps. The slower tracks require longer steps.

Tip #6: Good hip movement comes from getting the legwork right and is not a separate movement.

Tip #7: Always keep your body upright when dancing, with feet pointed slightly outward.

Tip #9: During the closed holds, arms should be slightly tensed, and some pressure applied.

Tip #10: On the break steps, do not just move your feet, transfer all your weight backwards and forwards.
