Cuban Salsa: El Atrevido

El Atrevido means “The Daring”. The move is like Siete Coca Cola but the Lead turns the Follow around by his right hand pushing her left shoulder.

A move like El Atrevido is not easy for a Lead at intermediate level. It is difficult to find the right natural balance between pushing and leading the shoulder. Ideally the Lead should just lead the move but some Follows must be helped with a little pushing.

In the video from “salsaydanzas”, Siete con Coca Cola is shown first and then El Atrevido:

Next, the same move with “bskdance”:

A tip to Leads: If a Follow is doing a perfect Siete con Coca Cola, then serve her El Atrevido next and there is a high chance that the move will work.

Finally the same move with “Ritmoslatinos Nava”, instructions in Spanish:

Same video at YouTube: El Atrivido (C).
