Shines & Body Movement

Salsa Shines is one of the key characteristics of Salsa dancing and is a complementing part of salsa partnerwork. You will use shines when you separate from your dance partner during the dance and create footwork patterns to enhance your dancing. Anyone who wishes to excell with their salsa dancing will need to learn shines. 

Most of us who dance Salsa want to get better and hopefully become advanced dancers. The higher the level of salsa gets, the more intricate the partner work becomes, the more skill will be required from both leader and follower to execute. In order to execute higher level partner work and styling in a good manner, shines will be of great help. Reason being because it will require you to practice specifics that will give you the base to conitinue to grow your solo dancing and as a result you will move with more ease in partner work and understand the footwork better.
