A Challenge This is a great topic. But while there are numerous complains that too many people in the salsa community place more focus on complicated patterns and technique than on musicality, I've yet to see discussions of musicality in terms of what each movement expresses or what each sequence or combination of moves is appropriate or inappropriate at a particular part of a song. We've been taught tools like basic steps, CBL, cross over breaks, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, Nth positions, right turns, left turns, multiple turns, Cumbia steps, suzie q's, etc.. and we've been taught combination of the aforemention, but we haven't really been taught how to use them. i.e. with a song that starts out soft and calm and gradually crescendoing into a more rhytmically complicated chorus or the body of the song, it is inappropriate (this is prob not a good word) to execute a complicated set of sequences of fast footwork and spins at the beginning. Rather, you'd want to start with something simple and build up to more complicated squence. I know there many variables involve, but I'd like to hear from you, esp. the salsa teachers, how you'd teach musicality. Pick a particular part of a song, any song. Describe what sequence or movement would go well with that part and what would not in your opinion. Let's see if you could put it in words.
