Description:


Lento is a Vacilala with one hand held. May be performed right to right, right to left, or any other combination. On 1 there must be Contra. This is achieved by giving the follower a slight pull inside on the 7th beat of the previous count. On 1-2-3 the follower walks a clock wise turn. THIS IS NOT A SPIN, this is a turn, which like all other turns in Cuban Salsa is performed walking in circles. Also the circle should complete one and a half turns. Meanwhile the leader steps in place and turns just a bit in order to be infront of the follower when she is finishing her turn. On 5 the leader gives the follower a slight pull, and the couple comes together to closed position, like the 5-6-7 of Enchufala
