I notice that, around here at least, very few salsa people hit breaks in the music. They just dance right through them. Last night I tried to hit a break with two different followers. I tried to lead it too. It didn't go well. They just kept up the 1-2-3 5-6-7 and looked at me with confused expressions. I was wondering how breaks are typically handled in other cities. Do most people hit them where you live or do they just dance through them? It's quite a change from the Lindy scene where hitting breaks is a big deal.
