Tips and Info
Almost all beginners do these things wrong:
  • First, they dance on the wrong beat of the music, making the "break step" on the first beat of the measure (count 1), rather than making the break step on the second beat of the measure. This error is okay for night club social dancing but most experienced dancers will prefer that you dance on the correct beat. Breaking the problem requires being able to correctly count the music, understanding where the measure begins. (My videos discuss how to count the music.)

  • Next, beginners never get the Cuban motion that is essential for characterizing the dance. This action CAN BE LEARNED. The secret begins with the footwork and the leg work, specifically the bending and straightening of the legs. A mistake is to bounce or to shuffle the feet, not allowing complete weight changes to occur.
