T209 - Ganchos I: Basic Ganchos

A Gancho (hook) is when a woman or man lifts their free leg while wrapping (hooking) it around their partner’s leg. During this series, we will look at Ganchos for women, men and both simultaneously. Also known as, Enganche (hooking).

Carpa / Volcada / Apilado

In this class, we look at a technique called "Carpa (Tent)." We could also use the terms Apilado or Volcada as described in the video. The technique involves both partners going off-axis towards one another creating an inverted V or an A frame (i.e. Tent) looking shape.
