Handholds -

The handholds are the same from dance type to dance type, though the names may vary slightly. Though the first 2 holds shown below -- the close hold and 2-hands hold -- are the most common and are almost exclusively used in Salsa 1, here are the others too so that you may know the language both for this course and for elsewhere.

Close hold

2-hand hold

Cross-hands, rights on top

Cross-hands, lefts on top

Right to right
