“Edie, the Salsa Freak, had some interesting things to say about “on one” and “on two” dancing. She said that what is important is dancing “to the music” by responding to the hits and breaks in a song, rather than whether the dance is structured “on one or two.” In her opinion, the best and most musically rich experience is to respond to the accents of a particular piece of music by altering where your break steps are to match those accents. Then afterwards you can resume whichever pattern (“on one or two”) you were doing for the bulk of the dance. In short, she felt that flexibility in responding to the music is more important that being wedded to a particular style or break pattern.” Dear Barbara,
Musicality: Technically speaking, and with all due respect, dancing Musically, to the MUSIC is part of what we call “BETTER THAN SEX. “
Happy MUSICALITY Dancing!!
