Salsa dancers begin with impossible pose – then light up the dance floor with incredible ending

January 24th, 2020

Salsa dancing is not an easy task. It is a form of art that takes a whole lot of practice, preparation and rehearsal. It also takes a large amount of skill and passion. You have to really feel the dance moves for a convincing performance!

A video that was uploaded not too long ago in February 2019 shows two dancers who exemplify the amazing skill and talent that goes into dancing, more specifically salsa dancing.

Juan Carlos Erazo and Evelyn Milan are the two dance partners in the video. Both exuding a huge amount of confidence, they are both wearing matching, sparkly blue costumes — Milan in a form-fitting body suit and Erazo in a fancy shirt and pant combo.

First, they enter the stage at the World Salsa Summit and the whole room is cheering them on profusely. They stand on the stage for a second, hold a pose, and then make their way down to the floor, more in the front.

Then they go over to the side and hold a mind-boggling pose. Milan splits her legs into two 90 degree angles, bending her knees, as Erazo picks her up slightly. It begins to create the illusion that Milan is almost floating and they both make it seem like it’s nothing, although we know that it really takes a whole lot of strength to stay in that position for as long as they do.

After holding that pose for a few beats, they waste no more time and nearly fly into the rest of their routine. Seriously, they begin to move so fast that it is almost dizzying to the human eye. Milan flips over Erazo’s body as he supports her physically. The two show off the immense strength of their bodies.

Milan spins in and out over and over again with the assistance of Erazo and then at one point even flies all the way up, high enough to sit on his shoulders. It is remarkable how effortless it was for her to get up there in that position!

They continue to both spin each other around almost simultaneously, while also nailing the intricate foot work. Not a step out of place, their chemistry and skill are pretty much unmatched.

The two dancers are from Colombia. They work so well with each other, too. At one point, Erazo even nails a body flip with the assistance of Milan. That move, in particular, earns a big cheer from the crowd.

Even when the two aren’t necessarily dancing intertwined with each other, they are still perfectly in sync. They both nail the same exact moves, at the same exact time and speed. We have a hunch that this took days, maybe even weeks or months to rehearse and perfect!

Towards the end, Erazo spins her around seemingly forever. At the end of the already-impressive spin, she then lands in a position similar to how they started — with both legs at a 90 degree angle, slightly floating in the air while being held by Erazo.

This performance is so impressive, you must experience it for yourself below!
