The teacher is, however, teaching something totally different. Her steps are essentially on beats 1-3-5-7 of a 2 measure pattern.

Beginning with feet together, the steps go as follows: 1-(LF to Front) 3-(RF comes together with LF). 5-(RF to Back) 7-(LF comes together with RF).

Side pattern taught is: 1-(LF to Left Side) 3-(RF comes together with LF). 5-(RF to Right Side) 7-(LF comes together with RF).

When questioned, the teacher says this is a Cuban style Salsa, but I haven't been able to find anything like it. Although I intend to learn standard Salsa dancing, I may continue with a few more of these lessons since the steps are a bit slower and, at my advanced age, might make for a bit of time to rest when needed.

At any rate, I would greatly appreciate anyone who could explain if the pattern above has anything to do with Salsa. Thanks Loads, PataSalada
