First watch and follow along with Erika and Jorge from the video tutorial.
Now we'll show you the cross body lead with a dance partner. If you don't have a partner to practice with just watch the tutorial for now. It will help you understand how this step is suppose to look when two people do it together. Remember even if you don't have a partner, we strongly recommend shadow dancing which is to practice with a imaginary partner.
TIP: Guys; notice that Jorge is using his frame to support his partner Erika.
TIP: Ladies; notice how Erika stays in the line the entire time.
TIP: Leaders are essentially moving out of the way in order to allow the follower to cross to the other side.
The next lesson will be the "Open Break" for leaders and "Stationary Right Turn" for the ladies. Please select your gender to move on.
