Dancing On1 and On2 compared

Post  kumar on Sun Sep 14, 2008 9:30 pm

While in closed frame, two partnered dancers can not be simultaneously dancing On1 and On2 respectively without causing injury to one another since the break steps are taken at different times.
Dancing On2 means that the break step synchronizes with the accented slap of the tumbao, the pattern played on the conga drums, while the On1 break step synchronizes with the first beat of the measure. For this reason it is said On2 is more rhythmically oriented, whereas On1 is more melodically oriented.
Commonly On2 starts the basic pattern with the lead moving back and the follow moving forward, while On1 the lead starts the basic step forward and follow steps back.
In addition, there are benefits to performing salsa spins on2 timing, given that the pauses in the steps occur when the feet are apart (compared to on1 which happen in the neutral position). This provides 1 extra count for adding more turns to a spinning pattern or having more time in settling the end of the salsa spins.
