Eight Basics of Salsa Combo 2

SALSA ON2 – Partnerwork Basics – Lesson 13 Beginner Combo 2

We will need a lot of practice in order to master our 8 basics. You’ve learned your first combo already, let’s learn another!

Think of each move in your 8 basics like a Lego piece that can be combined with any other Lego piece. There’s a lot that you can do with just these 8 moves. Mathematically, the number of possible permutations for just 8 items would be 40,320. That’s a lot of different arrangements! For followers, this means it’s important to learn to understand the signals and improve reaction time rather than learning the routines. Following is not the same as memorizing choreography. On the dance floor, these moves could come in any order.
