DO IT WITH A PARTNER
This is where we teach you how to make the step work with a partner. Don't be discouraged if things are a little bumpy at first. It's always easier to dance on your own than it is to dance with somebody moving in front of you. The main thing to remember here is that you are a team - be patient with each other. Try not to push and pull on each other to make things work, but rather stay nice and relaxed to allow your partner to dance their own part.
DO IT ON THE FLOOR
Underarm Turn Left
This step is going to feel best coming from a Back Basic or Quick Underarm Turn. It would be difficult coming from closed position in the Salsa Basic or Cucarachas.
Because the step finishes moving to the side, the most natural endings are the Back Basic and the Left and Right rocks.
DO IT WITH STYLE
Video 1: The lady has a couple of options for her head in the this step.
Video 2: You can cross your feet instead of closing them, to give the step a different style.
