1. ID Ladies Salsa Vol1 Trailer: Hold like a cherry side between your middle finger and thumb. So we go 1357123456 2. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 0 Course Intro: Hello, I'm Karina wish, and I'm part of the Incognito dance company. Welcome to the salsa lady styling course for beginners. In this course, we will cover all fundamental movements, essential techniques, and styling tips. Let's get started. 3. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 2 Posture: Before we start dancing, I will talk you through how to stand like a dancer. And ideally, you will hold this posture whenever you're done salsa. Starting from the feet, your feature be slightly turned out so your toes point slightly out. Not like a ballet dancers, straight flat, and also definitely not turned in. That should be slightly pointing out. Then you're nice, should be slightly bent. This keeps, gives you the flexibility to move your hips. If you knees are locked, then you can't move your hips. So keep them slightly bent at all times. Then you hips should be relaxed out. Keep that natural arch in your body. Don't push it out and don't talk under. Just very naturally relaxed to the back. Keep your core engaged at all times. That gives you the stability you need, especially for fluttering, spinning and all sorts of terms later on. Always keep the core engaged, keeps his centered and stable. Then your chest should be up no out because you need to keep your core engaged. So don't release your rips too much. But you should be up and then your shoulders rolled to the back, your shoulder blades should point inverts and down. So like this, make sure you don't raise up your shoulders. I see that a lot, especially when it comes to spinning or anything that you find difficult. People go like this, just makes sure that a nice town relaxed and back. So you're nice and open in your chest. Your eye line should be straight ahead. Don't drop your island to the floor. I see a lot of people looking to the floor that puts you off balance and also puts your whole posture at risk of slump of going over. So keep your island up, your chin up, and then also keep your hands up and which engages your whole core more. When you keep your hands up. 4. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 3 Basic Steps Forward and Back: Now I will explain your most important basic step, which is front and back. So as a lady, you start back on one with your right foot. We stepped back one, then you erase and replace your front foot onto. And we stepped to the front with your right foot on three. Thus you want 23. So we go one, race and replace to step forward three on five, we take our left leg and we step forward five rays and replace your back foot on six, step back on seven behind your foot. So that's 567. From the beginning we go 123567. You might think, where's the four and the eight? On foreign aid we transition, so we shift our weight. Also, we slow down the last step a little bit. So it goes quick, quick, slow, quick, quick, slow. Again. 56781234567812345678. And me facing you, 56781234567812345678. You might notice that I tried to step in one line, so one foot in front of the other, that will later on give you a nice hip movement and also makes you look more elegant if you step wide, like this, doesn't look so elegant. So keep your legs nice together and step on one line. Now I show you to decide 567123567123567. It's very important that as a dancer, you always step through the balls of your feet. So usually when you walk, you go heels first. So you walk heels first. But as a dancer, you always go through the balls of your feet like this. So like you massage the feet down, your heels will help to keep you on the balls of your feet. So just for now to step on the spot and try that. Stepping through the balls of your feet. And try doing that whilst you do your basic step. Let's do it again. 5671234567812345678. Also, you see that I keep my hands up. If you drop them down, you slump over. So keep them up, that will keep your posture right? And keep you balanced. So always keep your hands up. 5. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 3b Basic Steps Side To Side: So you're front and back. Basic is the one you will need the most every salsa dance, you will start with a front and back basic, but you can also do your basic side to side or in any other direction really. So right now, I'm gonna teach you side-to-side basic same principle. You start with your right leg on one, but this time we go to the side. So we go one race and replace your foot to close on 34567812345678. It's very important that you always lift, race and replace your foot. I see, especially in the site basic, I see a lot of people forgetting to race and replace the foot and then you rushing, you will be ahead of the music. So make sure you lift and you replace it, especially at the beginning, make it really big. You can always tone it down later on. Let's try again. 56781234567812345678. I show you facing the side, 56 781234567812345678. I'm facing the front, 5671234567812345678. The good thing is that you will always start with your right leg on one. So never a confusion, right or left. You always start on the right. 6. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 3c Basic Steps Practice To Music: Let's practice with music. We will do for front and back and forth side to side. And then again, 57256713571234567123456781571. Trial started quite situation five seconds. Again, 251 cells. The state psi one equal to one. Then the one that's statutory rights. 7. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 4 Other Basic Steps On The Spot: As you have now mastered, you very essential from the back and side to side basics. We can move on to basics in other directions. So I will teach you for different basics in different directions. We start with the one on the spot. So you just stepping on the spot, starting if your right foot, as always, we step 1234, 567812345678. With this one, you really have to accentuate the rolling through the balls of your feet. Really massaged floor. So this one is a good one for practice. That foot movement also accentuates those quick, quick, slow, quick, quick slow. Really have to drag on that last one. Again, 567123567123567. And from the front, 567123567123567. So this is your basic on the spot. 8. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 4b Other Basic Steps Back and Back: The next basic I will teach you is back and back. So instead of going back and forwards, we go back with both feet. Starting again with your right foot, we go 123 and then again back, 567123567. Same thing from front. 5678123567123567. And this is your back and back, but you sick. 9. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 4c Other Basic Steps Open Basic: The next basic step I talk you through is the open basic. So very similar to the back basic. We stepped to the back. But this time you cross over a little bit and open up your body to the site. So we go 123 and same with the other foot. You open up your body, face, decide 567123567. Same thing. Facing the side. Start with your right leg. 123567123567 and to the front so you can see how it looks from the front. 567123567123567. And this is your open Basic. 10. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 4d Other Basic Steps Side Basic with Cross: Our next basic is a site basic, but we've across again, we start with our right leg, we'd go 12. And then you cross over in the front. So instead of just coming together, This time, we cross in front. Then we go side again. 56, cross in front. 12 cross. 56. Cross. Showing you how it looks from the front. Start with your right leg. Go 123567123567. With this one, you can also change slightly you're facing. So I showed you facing the front. Now I'm gonna show you twisting 123. You can face side 567. So it's the same step, but you just change how your face. Again, 567123567123567 from the front. 567123567123567. And this is your site with a cross. 11. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 4e Other Basic Steps Practice To Music: Let's practice of music will do four of each step. 56 tabula itself challenged what kids think. 56711, C3G, 5-6 structural 15712567, S1, and S2. He sat at the table beside x routes one, please click to device. So it's 1235 slaves, which has to be sanctified thing, one place, 56123456789, which is the same thing again. Set it to one. That's back. Once spikes, functional, stationary prices rise by 75 subsections. Open and cross. 5671235671. Change of phase number one. If I change that, one mistake made by expected values. And what that meant traveling by night. Watching biosafety seminaries, approximations. I do legislation 70 years, once a day. But there's a second one integrated despite how much shear stresses quantity in that class. 12. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 5 Body Movement Intro: Now I will talk you through the body movement, which we will need for yourselves or dancing. This body movement is the essence of salsa. It gives it that Latin flavor and makes it look round and natural. I say natural, but at the beginning, it will feel very unnatural. You will be one of those videos you want to come back to a few times. But remember, practice makes perfect. 13. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 5b Body Movement How To Do It: Let's start with our shoulders. The shoulders will roll back on every step. So lift that up, push it back and drop it. One circle. Forward, back, forward, back, down. So both shoulders go One 212. Just try that for a bit. One 212. There we'll move on every step on the foot that you're stepping on, on the same side. So essentially, we will have the same written than we have in our basic step. So for now we go 123567123567. That's basically what your shoulders Do. They are heavily affected by what your upper body does. So your shoulder and your upper body are very much connected. So maybe take a bit of a wider stand for now. I'll pull my hair back so you can see. And we go, your upper body moves sides around, sight and round. So like a figure of eight. So your upper body separates from the hips. So for now, try to keep the hips still and just move your your rips. So like a pull from your rips out. Pull out. This movement will become bigger as you go along is muscles you have to train it for now, your movement is not very big. So just tried to as if you're pulling site to site, site to site, site to site. Once you get that side-to-side motion, you can then add it with a little figure of eight. And if your shoulder, so you connect, you go forward with your lips and your shoulder, and then back, forward, back, forward, back. So try to do this really big forward, side to side, side to side, side to side. Once you get that. This is the next step. Now we tried to do it in the right rhythm of salsa. So we go 123567123567123567. That's what your ribs unusual, the soldering. Your hips are going the opposite way. So you separate your body into port. Your hips are also doing a figure of eight movement, which is very famous. This figure of eight in salsa. So bend your legs. And for now we just push out one hip. Really push it out. Tried to push it as far as you can. And then you bent the other leg and you push up this other hip. So one 212. You might notice how my knees are moving. So a stretch one leg that pushes out my hip. Select this one from the other leg. Boom. 12. Once you can feel that that pressure from the floor that sends you hip out, you can try to do it in a figure of eight. So we go forward, twist your body forward and drop in the buck than the other hip forward. Drop in the back. Forward, up, down in the back, or forward down in the back. So 012, 121212. This is the very essential hip movement, figure of eight hip movement. If you struggled with this, just keep going. Stretch one leg, pushed the hip out, stretch the other leg, push the hip hop 12, and try to do it in a figure of eight motion. Then with your steps. 12356712356, seven, and then with the upper body and the shoulders, 1235671234567. Do it state by state? Very slowly. Just roll your shoulders back, move your chest side-to-side. Move your hips cytosol, and then piece altogether. This needs a lot of work. But again, remember, practice makes perfect. We will do the same again, but me facing the other way. So you can see it from a different angle. Again, your shoulders roll back, 12121212 or under cell-cell rhythm, 123567123567. Now your rips, just try this again to side to side 1212. And the more you do this, the bigger your movement will get standard bit wider apart. So we can do this movement really with the shoulder and the ribs. We go to the corner and back to the corner and back to the corner. Back to the corner. Back a bit faster. 12345678 to the salsa rhythm, we go 12356712356. So moving on to the hips, bend your legs and just stretch one leg. Send your hip out to the maximum you can do. Not change. Sent the other day about we're stretching our left leg, left hip comes out, change, change, change, change. Now for the figure of eight, when we change, we send it to the front, up in the front, down in the back, up in the front, down in the back. 12345678. Now let's do it in the cell-cell rhythm. We go 123567123567. Let's do all the parts together with your basic on the spot. So we go 123567123567123567123, 567. 14. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 5c Body Movement Hip Movement with Side Basic: Let's practice those figure of a tips with our site's basic, cuz it's really easy to feel those hips going when you do your site basic. Okay, let's start with our right leg to the side. We go one, send your hip out front, round the back. 23, transfer your weight, then step out on 567. Go 123567123567. 15. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 5d Body Movement Practice To Music: Let's practice our body movement. Shouldice, chest and hip with music We do for front and back basics and foresight to cite 57 robots. Just a side effect that can occur. In spite of theta one, theta two, theta three, theta function applied to the system. 16. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 6 Arms and Hand Styling: Let's talk about our hands and arms. Whenever you not important at hold, you want to have this shape with your hand. Hold like a cherry sized between your middle finger and your thumb. And your other fingers go slightly up. If you want to grab a pen and sticky between your middle finger and your, your other fingers on the top. Like that, that gives you a nice shape. Let's do an exercise. Your hand always follows your arm. That gives it a very soft feeling. So let's, if you move your arm up, you hand follows. And when you move your arm down, it follows. So up, you haven't faces down, your arm goes down, you haven't faces up. So just do that for awhile and get used to that feeling. That will give you arms and hands a very soft look. Like so. 17. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 7 Right Turn: We've learned our basics. Now it's time to start turning. Our first term is a step turn, called right-hand turn. So we stopped the basic to the back on 123, normal, half a basic. Then we step forward on five, twist to face the other way on six, and then close your feet together and swivel around on seven. So that term happens, 567 K. So we do our half basic first 123. Step forward on five, straightforward, were not already turning. We step straightforward. Then on six, swivel around. Keep your feet where they are. We just turn our body to face the other way. And then on seven, close your backlog to the front leg and swivel around. Shoot. For this. You will have to have your weight on the balls of your feet. Don't ever turn on your heels. Otherwise, it's dangerous if the floor is not smooth or something. Always have the weight on the balls of your feet. Like so. So when you hear on six, we close together and swivel around. Keep your knees together, your legs together, and your feet together. When you swivel, that will help you later on when we do spinning. Let's go again. 5.567, a basic 123. Step forward on five, back on six, swivel around on seven. Again. 12356. Seven. These are your steps for your right-hand turn. Now, that is a lot of things we need to focus on. First thing is spotting. What I mean by spotting is that you focus on something in front of you and you try to look at that as fast as he can again. So when we're here, 56 is still looking to the front and then seven, boom, my head whips around. If you have long hair, there should be flying around. Spotting is something you should practice. Start practicing now, because when we go to spinning and you do two or three or more terms, you will get so busy that you won't know What's front them back. So if you start it now, you will have no problems when you start spinning. So again, we go 123. Now look straight to the front, focus on something, 56, still focus on that spot. And then seven SRP, whip your head around. But faster, 567123567. This is your spotting, which is very important. Now let's focus on our hips. The hips can make a right-hand turn. Look, make it look very central. Can give it that extra Latin flavor. So we go 123. Now, focus on the hip. Push out to the front. Imagine your partner is in front of you. You give them a nice view. 567. Okay. Again, 123 sink into the hip on 567. Spotting and hips. Again, 567123567. Once this way, 567123567. 18. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 7b Right Turn Arm Options: I will now give you two options for what you can do with your hands and arms during a right turn. The first option is we're going to point to the front. So remember, you hold your cherry and your pencil with your hands. So we go 1235. You look to the front or your partner. And as if you give him this cherry that you're holding between your middle finger and your thumb on five. And then 67, again, 123567. Your hand is in front of you, so you move it from the front to the side. So you open it up like this. Like so. Again, 567123567123567. This is your first option. Now we're going to lift our arms up. So as I showed before, lift your arm up, your hand follows and down. Remember to not lift up your shoulders. This is what I talked about in the posture section. So even when you lift up your arms, your shoulder doesn't suddenly rise to your ear. Tried to drop it down. So when you lift arms up, the shoulders are down. This might feel very uncomfortable at the beginning, but again, you can improve it over time and they will see a more natural. So lift your arms up and down whilst you're turning. You might find it easier if you hold your wrist because your arms might tend to drop down whilst you're turning. So you can lift up, hold your wrist quickly, unbound. So let's do it with the term. We go 123, lift your arms up. 567. Again, slowly, we go 123, lift your arms up. So I bring my arms in to the front, then raise them up. 567. I turned around and I slowly drop them, maybe even during my next basic. Okay. Once again, 567123567123. Once more, 5671 to prepare your arms on 3567123. And these are your two options for your write Stanton. 19. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 7c Right Turn Practice To Music: Let's practice with music, will do both options for the arm styling twice. And the basic in-between. Let's go 5-6, allowed back stage fright, baseball. But on the other hand, ops, greatly damaged. If you get the cube root of two by 12345 are at triangle. Gosh, what if, why is it perhaps the editor? Such as the guy next to me? 20. ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 8 Left Turn: Now we're going to learn our left-hand term. This is also a step turn. So you step. So we started our basic to the back, 123, then we step forward on five, step back on six, and then we turn our what, our left shoulder on seven. Let's see that again. So we go 123567, we're facing sideways. You complete your turn in the next eight. So we step forward on one, turn around on 23. And then you finish your basic 567. Again. 123. Step forward, five, step back, six, open up on seven. Then we go backwards on 123 and finish your basic on 567. Let me show you this on to the site. Again, 567123, normal half basic. Then we step forward on five, back on six, open up on seven. Then we keep turning that way. 123, finish your basic 567. Once again, but a bit faster. 567123567123567. Let me show you this way. 567, your basic 12356, open up, steps back. 123, finish your basic 567. Again, once bit faster. 567123567123567. This is your footwork for the left turn. Now, I know this is a bit more tricky than the right-hand. But if you are feeling confidence, Let's add the arm, arm styling. So the first option I give you is responding one-hot arm, your right arm. Okay, so we do our basic 123. Then on five is when this right arm coming up five, sorry, from the front is positioned five. So you bring your arm up like we learned, fingers following. And your left arm is going on ships. So it's a very strong posts. We go step forward five. And you shift your weight onto your front foot like usually would five. Then to bring the arm down, we're going to brush over our head, down along our body. So it's up. We brush our hair back is also very good tip. When your head is all in your face from turning, you can brush off you face down the back and then we go alongside our body with an open hand. Yeah. Don't actually touch your body.

So make sure you pick up your leg. So don't drag them along the floor. Pick up one and then over cross your feet. So you got 1357. So you have a little twist in your body. One. So keep your shoulders pointing to the front. Your lights, if you think of car lights shining to the front and not to the site. So keep your shoulders to the front, but you're up, lower half of your body is twisting. So we go 1357. And of course, we keep our weight on the toast, on the balls of our feet. Yeah. So keep it nice and up even higher than your heels. Okay. Go 1357. If you feel like you're falling off balance, it's probably because your weight is back.

It's now one, race and replace two. Then you step to the back, reasonably place 35678. So your left leg basically always stays at the same spot and your right leg loop moves back and forwards. Okay, so let's go from the basic into it. 12356712345678123567. You can see I change my body positioning so i don't face the front anymore and sort of faced the corner almost the site. K. And I had just start on the count of eight. So if I go from the basic 1235678, I changed my body to face the corner. We go 12345678 and back to the basic 567. Your arms just swap leg. This leg we do in salsa, but it's slightly slower. So we go 12356, swap your body positioning. We go 12345678123567. Let's go slightly faster. 5678123567 and front and back. Front and back.

You will come across this step quite a lot, especially if you go to a salsa club and they do a warm up and you follow it. I think that would definitely include a Suzy. Q. So let's learn it. We start with our basic. We'd go 123567. Now crossover your left or your right leg over your left one. Then we twist and bring your left leg out a little bit and then twist again and cross the right over. So it's a cross motion, 123. Then you bring your left leg over. Five, twist six, twist again, seven. And then you can go back into your basic. Let's, let me do it to the front so you can see it. From the basic 123567. We step over with our right leg, one twist to three, and we cross our roof, the left 567. So you still step right, left, right. For you keep your legs crossed as much as possible. And you can move with that twist motion. So you go 123567. Can you see how my lower body is twisting? So you go 123 step over 567. I showed you from the back. 567 step over 123567123567. 34.

ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 16 Slide: This is one of my favorite steps. It's a variation of the open break and it's called slight. Let me just remind you quickly what an open Basic looks like. So we go one, opening up our body to the side 23 and same to the other side, 67123567. So this is the open basic that you learned earlier on. Now we're gonna do a little nice variation. So you have something different to show off with. So we start the same, we go 12. But instead of just coming together, we take a big step to our right three, and we drag our leg behind us to create this slight action. So again, we go 12 and a big step, three. Then the same thing to the other side, 56. Then we take a big step to the left. 8123567. You really have to push off this left leg. So we go one to push off 3567123567. Make sure that the leg that you're dragging behind you is nice and stretched and even your foot could be pointed. Ideally, make sure that leg is stretched. That's most important. Then in terms of shape, you want to really accentuate your hips, pushing that hip out so you create a nice shape. And then your body leans over slightly. So you go 123. This is your posture. So your hip, it's pushed out, your legacy stretched and your weight is forward. 35671234567. Let's do that again. I turn around so you can copy me. Five, 6781234567812345678. If you feel very comfortable with that, you can add a little arm variation that I will show you now. If you don't feel comfortable yet, then just keep if the footwork, This is the most important thing and then you can always add different arms later on. So we're gonna go 12. And then on the slide, I put my right arm on my hip and my left arm pointing out with our lovely thickness that we practiced earlier on. But leaning over the leg, leg and arm, straight and the hip is out. This is the position you want to get into 1567 on this side, obviously. Again from the front. So you've got 123567. And always when you look at something, then everybody else would also look at your hands. So if you want to draw attention to your pretty fingers, then I would suggest look at them. Okay, let's do one basic from them back and then into the slide, 56712356, slide 123567, again slight 23567 from the back. 56, basic go 1234567. Oh, and slide 56. Slides.

ID Salsa Ladies Vol1 17 Kicks and Flicks: Kicks him, flicks is something you can add into all sorts of different steps. But right now, I will teach you a very basic version. But later on you can do kicks and flux in all sorts of directions and in combination with a variety of steps. Okay, let's start. The first question I'll teach you is we go from a half a basic, so we go 123. And instead of doing the next part of the basic, we kick forward with a straight leg and bring it in. 67. So we go 123, brushy leg forward, a floor, straight to the front, then bend your knee, bring it in and behind. So you go 123567123. From the front, it looks like this. 123 kick 567123. Okay. So important is that you brush the floor, straight leg, pointed tos, and then you bend your leg and you bring it back. Again. 123567123. Obviously, you can also do this kick with your right leg. Completing a basic and then starting the kick. So we go 123567123567. Okay. Once more. So you go 12356, step behind, then lift up your leg. 123. Transfer your weight to your backlog and step on the front. Five 67. Once more from the front. 567, basic T 3567123567. This is a nice way to show off your legs, you shoes, whatever you want, you want to show off. And to bring something different to your basic. There is another version I will teach you now, which is slightly faster and it goes from our back basic. So a normal buck basic with it, 123567. Now we're adding the kick. We got 123 kick with your left, 567, kickball fuel, right. 12 together, kick with your left and then bring your left straight to the back. 567 Kichwa fuel, right? 1234567812345678. I will show you now how it looks from the front. We go 123, kick 567, kick 123, kick 567, kick. The difference between a kick and a flick is the flick goes straight leg and then you bend. Whereas the kick goes Ben straight bends down. Like you kick a football. Yeah. But when you flick, you go straight. And then let me show you that all from the site. So with the slow one, with the flick, we got 1235678, 123567. If the other leg, 123567123567, again, 123567123567. Now the kicks 123, kick 567, kick 123, kick 56, Server kick. 38.
