Cuban Salsa: Siete Loco

Siete Loco (Crazy Seven) is rather common with a lot of videos out there. The figure is difficult for two reasons. 1) The Follow most be good enough to know that her left hand must be available on her right shoulder after the first 1-2-3. 2) After the two handed Coca-Cola and Dile Que No, the Lead must lead the Follow into a two handed “back to back” turn (also called barrel turn) for both Lead and Follow, the Lead turns left the Follow right.

This “back to back” turn is surprisingly difficult to lead, probably because the turn is not that common in Cuban Salsa. The only other well known move that comes to my mind is A Bayamo por Arriba.

Siete Loco has a rather common ending we see in many other moves: Two Exhibela and an Alarde (head loop) to the Lead.

Hanami Dance (Hungary) has a good basic beginner style for their videos. I like that they have time to connect:
