Cuban Salsa: Siete Loco Complicado

Siete Loco Complicado is a real complicado, long and with several difficult parts. It is very good for training in classes and also works well in social dancing on advanced level.

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 first video is with Henry Herrera from “Salsa Racing”, Miami. The move is contributed to him. Don’t let the strange way of doing Guapea in this video confuse you: Moving forward on the right foot, counting 1-2-3! The Follow even counts 4-5-6 (!) several times! It makes sense, four comes after three but it is much better to count to the music, 1-2-3, 5-6-7.

The second video is from the “Quick and Dirty Salsa” DVD. Also in this video, they like to say 4-5-6 instead of 5-6-7! Both DVDs are out of the Miami Cuban Salsa Community, and might be a local “loco” way of counting!

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:
