Beginner Lesson 2: Cross Body Lead (On2)
Now that you’ve got the Left Turn down, let’s learn how to move your partner from one side to the other with the Cross Body Lead (CBL). Although it’s a move within itself, soon you’ll be using the CBL to bridge all sorts of different moves together.
The CBL you’re about to learn is more typical of the “night club style” of salsa, commonly known as LA Style (On1) or New York style (On2), as opposed to the Cuban (Casino and Rueda) and Colombian (Salsa Caleña) styles of Salsa.
In short, the cross body lead is everything, so make sure you work on perfecting it over time!
