Its all about weight distribution initially, then comes the styling part.
Visit www.detroitsalsadance.com in article section there are some interesting tips.
For now, Here is how I would start
Stand with feet together side by side
– Note weight should be more or less equally distributed between legs
Now shift all your weight to left leg:
- feels like locking up your left leg
- now your right leg is bent forward
Repeat the same but switch legs – meaning shift all your weight to the right leg and bend your left leg forward
That’s how you dance meringue. Notice when you shift weight the hip moves as well. Salsa is very similar except that the beats are different. After this you can build thing more with styling
