Cross Body (LA & NY Salsa) is danced in linear movements, i.e. dance on a line. The most important part of Cross Body is what is referred to as the “cross-body lead”, with the participants dancing face-to-face with each other. At a point, the male dancer (the lead) will turn first and the female dancer turn later after she has passed the male dancer, hence the “cross-body lead” name. Cross Body, has two sub categories – L.A. style and N.Y./Mambo style. They may also be called On1 and On2 respectively. Cuban Salsa, also known as Casino, differs with Cross Body in that it is danced in a circular motion, with the male dancer usually in the centre and the female dancing on the outside around the male dancer.
