    Hmmm, I know what a dile que no is, but I don't know what a cross-body lead is.

    Or Colombian style. We have Dile Que No in Colombian. In fact all the moves are in spanish...

    ACtually either can be called. What is called depends on the situation. THere are certain moves where dil que no is called to get into gupea basic step. Other times dame is called.

    Really? I try my best not to. Well, I take that back. I have tried the press-on nails but they kept getting caught in my keyboard. You know, it's just no fun and it takes too much energy pulling them out the keyboard, not to mention the injuries. :lol: :p

    My understanding has been that when Dile Que No is called you stay with the same partner, whereas Dame is "partner change + Dile Que No" -- am I right, or is it a regional thing?

    That's correct, Mac. For the most part, "Dame" is called as far as I know, when it's a "direct" partner change. Otherwise, depending upon the move, Dile Que No is just given or done automagically. :) The only time I've heard Dile Que No actually called is in class while teaching students.

    I alwas wondered about those press-on nails. Are they any good at faking it?
    ...And by that I mean, are they a sign that you're all-knowledgeable?
    LOL Sabor :lol:

    I've heard Dile Que No called in social rueda where everybody gets all tangled up :shock: :lol: and Dile Que No is called to untangle ourselves back into a circle. I can't remember the call that got us into a mighty knot... I think it was Taro with something else.

    Ok peep, here is a sample of a video clip that it shows dile que no. Notice when the guys stan up and do the turn to the girls, they do a dile que no in the Rueda. Also look at i t every time they change partners they do Dile que no.

    Also you can check below in the table other turns they do in the Rueda.

    Enjoy the samples. :)

    Pacion:

    That's interesting :!: :eek: I never explored into that. But I think it would be hard to fake it. I also think that experience in dancing bleeds through the posts and conversations. Some how.

    I don't know anyone here, but I'm willing to sustain that Kansas City Salseros can benefit by going to those places you all are. They may learn something. I mean, to go into some details, as most people do here, you have to know your stuff :cheers: :bouncy: :banana: :applause: :notworth:

    Not that I doubt anyone's competence,(I prefer to just not think about it) but I disagree with you here, I believe it is very possible to talk a good game and then not really be a dancer.

    Yes. And all our teachers are cuban.

    fake

    Vin:

    You probably right. But I find it difficult for someone to talk about things they don't know :roll:

    For example, I can't talk about Tango because I don't know how to Tango :(
