Salsa Virtuous Cycle.

2 Nov

Many times I see a salsa gigolo try to teach a salsera on the dancefloor using words. The challenge is to not use words, but to just lead.

Salsa Virtuous Cycle:

The better a salsa gigolo leads, the better a salsera follows. One way to measure a salsa gigolo’s skill is to observe how well a salsera can follow. The better a salsera looks, the better a salsa gigolo looks. Another way to measure a salsa gigolo’s skill is to observe how he reacts when a salsera does something unexpected. The better he can cover for the unexpected, the better a salsera looks, and again, the better a salsa gigolo looks.

When a salsa gigolo and salsera both share this philosophy, anything and everything is possible in a dance.
