Copas
Lots of variations.  
Start with right hand shake, ready to stop the lady firmly on 3.
Both leaders and ladies should be evenly balanced on 3, both facing sideways, with feet apart, and ready to complete the move turning out either way.

Cuban Salsa - Dance Moves
 
Cuban Salsa dancing is in a rotating motion, in open and closed hold. 

Cuban Salsa can be danced alone, with a partner
or also as a group dance in a circle - which is fun!


Cuban Circle Salsa is known as Rueda de Casino
(Spanish for 'The Casino Wheel')
Guernsey Dance Classes 
When the 'Caller' calls the name of a move, all the couples dance the same move at the same time, this often involves swapping partners during the move!
