    Can anyone explain in simple terms what a "tick" means in latin dancing. I heard it once or twice but never could understand exactly.

    One of my Latin instructors Nonci Tirado likes to say "tick" when she wants to emphasize a very sharp hip switch from one side to the other. This usually coincides with a "quick" (one beat). I am not sure that this is the "meaning" that you are seeking though.

    yeah, I have sort of cloudy idea of what it is. but I was wondering if it can be taught.
