Dimension: Height - Theme: The quebrada

In this class, we focused on a step called the quebrada, where the leader goes down with his knees together. It is a very elegant posture which creates opportunities for a wide range of versions. In the intermediate class, we saw a lovely adornment for the follower, a boleo and a version of the quebrada from a change of front.

Dimension: Energy - Theme: Boleos

Boleos are high energy steps which come from a change of direction. In this class, we started with a simple boleo combination for the beginners. We then looked at a high back boleo which can be used in milongas as it is led within the embrace and we closed the class with a forward boleo.

Dimension: Energy - Theme: Varying the energy of rebounds

Rebounds are by nature quite energetic but in this class, we looked at how to vary the energy of this classic step. We started with a simple rebound on both sides for the beginners and then moved on to a slow romantic rebound in parallel system and a couple of challenging versions in cross system.

Dimension: Energy - Theme: Varying the energy at the cross

The cross is such a classic step, it's nice to know ways to play with it to match the music. We started the class with the salida cruzada. We then moved to a step called la salida de los cuarentas, we also added 2 adornments at the cross and last finished with an original cross/sandwich step that we are very fond of.

Dimension: Energy - Theme: High energy steps

In this class, we had a look at rebounds in backward ochos for beginners & improvers. We then put a bit more energy in the step to create what we like to call baby backward ochos. We also had a look at baby forward ochos and how to link both.

To start our new term, we focused on soft forward ochos for beginners & improvers. We took this simple step to the next level with the intermediates and also focused on a couple of pivots on two feet.

Dimension: Axis - Theme: Volcadas

Volcadas are beautiful out of axis steps where the follower leans forward onto her partner. There are quite a few versions, the main ones being circular vs linear volcadas.

Dimension: Axis - Theme: Planeos

Planeos... Another beautiful, aerial tango family step. In the beginner class, we started with two classic planeos, one from the backward ocho and the other from the forward ocho. In the second class, we were a bit more adventurous and saw an off-axis planeo, a planeo on both legs and a very nice planeo from a sentada (a personal favourite)
