How to Do the windmill pattern dance move in salsa
This video is part of an instructional series on salsa dancing. In this particular video, instructors Anthony Persaud and Julie Merrill indicate the proper way to execute windmill dance moves in salsa. These moves involve structured turning, with or without a partner. The arm is raised up and outward, turning in a clockwise, then counterclockwise motion to facilitate turning from one way to the other. The name windmill refers to the way the arm turns to allow the move. Anthony provides instruction on how to maintain the lead in your dance partnership while a windmill combination is happening. Other elements of salsa dancing including an open break and a copa are also featured to show viewers where a windmill move is performed. Julie provides additional instruction for female partners to follow, to indicate proper positioning throughout the moves.
