This video is just a demonstration. Become a member to access the full version of this tutorial.

Siesta Swoop

The Siesta Swoop is all about adding a little variation into your basics to keep things interesting. After all, what’s life without a little spice?

The combo starts with a 2 o’clock turn for the ladies (siesta time!) and an arm swoop into a cumbia step for the fellas. The chicas then follow that up with another right turn followed by a hair brush, finishing it all off with a free spin.
