Weight in Mambo/Salsa Posted by MikeB 3/8/2008 5:55:00 AM
In the movies of the Mambo and Salsa basic steps on Ballroomdancers.com, it looks to me as if the dancers are beginning the steps with their body weights opposite to what I have been taught. For example, just before the man steps with his left leg, his weight appears to be on his left side, whereas I was taught that just before one steps with the left leg, the weight should be on the right side. My 2 questions are: am I viewing the movies correctly and, if so, was I taught correctly? Thank you in advance for a reply.
