Cuban Salsa: Siete Moderno

Siete Moderno is a little difficult to lead. At intermediate level it works in class but a Lead is likely to run into problems in social dancing, if the Follow does not know to make her left hand available almost at shoulder height as she turns.

The first video is from “Dolce Dance”, Hungary:

The Salsa Lovers DVD has as always some good commentary:

The Lead must stop the rotation of the Follow with his right hand on her right shoulder, and he must switch hands in a second, and that is only possible if the Follow makes her left hand available almost at shoulder height.

The third and last video is from our friends in Bogota, Colombia, “Son de Habana”:
