Day 7: Hook Turn

A welcome break from day 6, the hook turn is a classic salsa turn. Have fun with this one, because that is what it’s all about. Don’t get too caught up on the technical stuff here (I can’t believe I just wrote that…). But seriously, try and have fun with this one. Find your own expression with the hook turn. There is really no right or wrong way to do it.I show you a basic way to get into it and then I go through lots of variations and ways to spice it up a bit. I really like to use the hook turn for hits and stops in the music…hook turn,Stop/hit. Show me your experiments and variations, or just try one of mine. Have fun!!
  • Try to step out your steps as much as possible
  • Keep the feet turned out
  • Keep good alignment throught your body to help maintain good balance
  • PLAY with it! Get lost in the fun with this one. Experiment with booty rolls and head rolls.

As always thanks for participating. I hope you are having as much fun as I am. And I hope you are seeing the benefits of daily training.

Shoes are @burjushoes “Trionyx.” One of my most elegant and flattering shoes that I own. And I love the color so much!
