1. Salsa Basic
The Salsa Basic Movement consists of a combination of alternating forward and backwards rock steps in Closed Position, to the count of "Quick-Quick Slow, Quick-Quick Slow". For both man and lady, the right foot will break back, and the left foot will break forward.
The figure can be danced without any turn (as shown), or with up to 1/4 turn left per measure. The "Slow" count can be a closing step (as shown), or it can be taken forward, back, or to the side.
