Ganchos, these emblematic tango steps! Ganchos are steps where one partner (often the follower) kicks under the other's leg and enganches are steps where one partner (again normally the follower) wraps one leg around the partner's leg. In this class, we saw a few classic combinations of both ganchos and enganches
In this class, we saw a pot-pourri of steps we really like from the Golden Age, including classic and unusual combinations using the cross as well as a barrida and gancho combination that stole our heart.
Playing with different time signatures, e.g when the leader and the follower don't follow the same rythm, is an incredibly powerful tool to add spice and personality to your tango. In this class, we looked at some classic steps that use different time signatures.
Tango is a walking dance and therefore the walk plays a large role in making your tango expressive. In this class, we looked at a few old fashioned and traditional tango walks, with some leaders' adornments.

If we ran a survey, milongueros across the world would probably say that colgadas are the scariiiiiest step there is! Don't fret though, in this class, we saw how to use the concept of shared axis in a safe, fun and beautiful way.
This class started with a simple square around the leader for beginners. In the intermediate class, we added variant to this step, with a boleo, a giro and a change of direction. We also saw a step we particularly like, a pasada using the follower's back foot.
