Cuban Salsa: Siete Loco Complicado

Siete Loco Complicado is a real complicado, long and with several difficult parts. It is good for training in classes and also works well in social dancing on advanced level. The back-to-back turn in the Siete Loco part is the most tricky. In the tutorial for Siete Loco and in the tutorial for the back-to-back turn, I recommend to use a full eight count for the back-to-back turn, making it both easier to lead and more fun.

Siete Loco Complicado comes with two endings. The most common is a second hook turn at the end, or the Lead can just “pick her up with your right arm” over her head. Both versions are shown below.

The move is attributed to Henry Herrera from “Salsa Racing”, Miami. Video 1 is from the “Quick and Dirty Salsa” DVD. They have a strange way of counting “4-5-6” instead of “5-6-7”!

In the next video from “Ritmo de la Luna” (Hungary), the hook turn on the last 5-6-7 is replaced with “picking her up with your right” arm over her head:
