Every week, you’ll find on our blog class notes and a summary video from our Wednesday and Sunday tango group classes.
These video and notes are meant to help our students remember what they’ve done in class.
Beginners & improvers: Cute 180-degree turn where the leader pivots on two feet
- Leaders: Pivoting on your toes on one side and one your heels on the other makes you collect your feet at the end of the pivot! Handy!
- Followers: Walk close to your partner, and every two steps, there is a pivot.
Beginners & improvers: Pivot of the follower on two feet
- Followers: Make sure you have a proper walking technique, always passing by the middle on the beat. This will make this (and any other!) step easier.
Intermediates: Pivot on two feet leading to the cross
- Leaders: To go past your partner without her moving, you need (for once), to go with the leg first and leave your torso slightly behind.
- Followers: When your partner goes to your side, make sure you keep the connection with him by dissociating.
Intermediates: Pivot on two feet from the cross
- Leaders: Lead a wide cross by giving the follower more energy sideways than for a normal cross.
- Followers: For the uncrossing, start with your weight on two feet and gradually transfer on to your right foot.
- Leaders: Practise the technique described in the first step; e.g. pivoting on the heel of one foot and the ball of the other. This is a really useful technique that can be used in a variety of steps.
- Followers: Pivoting on 2 feet is a bit uncommon, so try and practise it on your own. The movement should be fluid and graceful.
See you soon on the dancefloor,
