El Matador – Intermediate Salsa Pattern

El Matador

Posture up fellas because you’re about to become El Matador! This smooth new intermediate Salsa pattern combines a number of beginner and intermediate steps into an elegant combo.

El Matador starts with an inside turn and then moves into an outside turn with the ladies ending in a hammerlock hold. From there, the combo finishes off with a swing of the cape and a suave to exit.

This is a perfect pattern for practicing the connection between the various steps while maintaining a nice perpetual motion that makes this combo looks so suave.
