In this class, we focused on how to change speed using pivots and giros. For intermediates, we saw a lovely sequence using giro, sacada, planeo and barrida. A great addition to add some umpf to your tango repertoire.
In this class, we reviewed some of the steps we saw in our last term, including various planeos and a fast flat giro to add contrasts.
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.
