SATURDAY 5TH & SUNDAY 6TH

OCHOS FRONT
Discover the easy and enjoyment of twist aka pivot in ochos.
Never again struggle with balance or “heaviness” in your ochos! Gain confidence in how to lead this essential element of tango with any partner to any music.

CROSSWALKS AND ALTERATIONS
It’s half the dance walking in cross. Develop confidence in crossed system by having a felt sense of where your partner’s weight is. The unique dynamic of crosswalks lends itself beautifully to alterations, which will let you start to float and fly in your dancing.

OCHOS BACK
Did you know there are three primary types of ocho back? Expand your fluency and expression in tango by learning the difference between standing leg, free leg, and crossing ochos! Your dancing will never be the same.

BOLEOS
Once you gain an understanding of twist, axis, and ochos, it’s time to explore boleos. Hint: we will take a look at how boleos developed over the decades in our video course on Friday. Know how to keep a boleo on the floor, stretch it out, or let it fly. Follows will learn how to lead the different leads for this move and manage their legs on a crowded floor.

GIROS/TURNS (molinete)
¾ turn, full turn, doubles… get to know the importance of synchronization in the turn. If you’ve been baffled by this one, discover the magic that happens when turns are done as a couple rather than attempted as choreography. Learn the feeling of turns in as they are danced in Buenos Aires.

ENTRANCES AND GIROS
Once you have a feeling for turns.. It’s time to add entrances. Women’s and men’s entrances included so muster up your remaining energy for this fun enhancement of the the merry-go-round of tango, giros!
