Cross Body Lead

The Cross Body Lead is one of the most important beginner Salsa steps you’ll learn and you’re going to be using this move A LOT. Having a smooth Cross Body Lead is an absolute game-changer. Taking the time to perfect this step is well worth your time. Once you master it, you’ll feel huge results – we promise. If there is any move to perfect when you’re first starting out, it would be this one.

Although a move within itself, more experienced dancers tend to use the Cross Body Lead to bridge different moves together; it is also more typical within the more linear “night club style” of Salsa.
