How to Do the patternito salsa dance move (reverse cross body lead)
Salsa dancing, like salsa the food, is spicy hot and full of Latin American sizzle. During salsa dancing, there is a double-handed move called the in-n-out in which the girl gets spun out to her left and gets resisted by the guy on her right shoulder so she doesn't spin out too far.
A great move to try after the in-n-out is the patternito, a fancy term for a reverse cross body lead.
After an in-n-out salsa move, you can keep both hands near the follow's shoulder, and flick the hand into a hammerlock. From there, you can proceed with a simple reverse cross body lead. We called it "Patternito" as a play on the phrase of 'Short Pattern'.
