We have just completed our Academic Term focusing on the Tango Dimension Axis and on De Angelis orchestra. Time to review what you’ve learned!


Tango Dimension: Axis

In class, you’ve seen quite a few different concepts around the AXIS dimension. Click on the links to have access to all the class notes and videos for a quick refresher.

  • Pasadas: Several pasada variants from the backward ocho.
  • Lifts & stumbles: Romantic lift from the corte and stumble backwards.
  • Volcadas: Volcadas are steps where partners lean in towards one another. In this class, we saw a playful volcadita and a volcada from a planeo.
  • Colgadas: Colgadas are steps where partners “hang” from one another. In this class, we saw a simple colgada from an arrastre and a dramatic one from the cross.
  • Single axis turns: Starting from the sandwich little turn, we explored several versions of single axis turns.
