How to Do a cross handed turn pattern in salsa dancing
In order to do the Cross Handed Turn Pattern in Salsa dance, you will need to begin by facing your partner. Partners will begin by holding hands: right hand with right hand and left hand with left hand. Raise the right hands over the left hands. The female partner turns on counts 1-4, when led by male partner. When she returns she turns him on counts 5-8. When he turns to the front again, he turns her again on counts 1-4. When she returns to the front, they loop their hands over their head: her right hand behind her head, and his left hand behind his head.
