Cuban Salsa: Three Way Stop

The “Three Way Stop” is a good move for training because the Lead really must be up to the task to get it going. We don’t have many formalized moves using this technique of turning the Follow by her shoulders. It is a great technique in social dancing and ought to be in the toolbox of any advanced Lead.

The “Three Way Stop” move is attributed to Rene Gueit, so let the master himself present the move. The video is from the Salsa Lovers DVD:

Same video at YouTube: Three Way Stop (A).

Next, the same move featuring “Shanghai Latin Dance”:

Same video at YouTube: Three Way Stop (B).

Next “Media Noche Salsa”, the Three Way Stop as used in Rueda de Casino:

Same video at YouTube: Three Way Stop (B).

Warning: There are many half baked videos out there called the “Three Way Stop”. They are attempts of doing the Rene Gueit move but often only the first half of it or other things are missing.
