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.

Dimension: Speed - Theme: Barrida

In this class, we has a look at a classic tango step, the barrida where one partner sweeps the other's foot on the floor. We had a look at how to play with the speed and energy of the barrida to generate soft barridas or high energy ones.
