In this class, our theme was executing barridas (to sweep or drag), including many creative variations.

In this demo, we start with the most basic of leg wraps (ganchos), leading her to a side open and stepping into her step to receive the wrap (:14). The primary leg wrap from the class can be seen clearly at :22 and 1:55. It starts with a rebound step and lead her around/over my right leg, creating an opportunity for her to wrap. One thing that we discussed in the class was the technique for the women, to make these safe for the dance floor, is to not extend the leg out after the wrap.. notice at :25, Shelley's knee is bent and goes up instead of out.

This is a fun step for use with more rhythmic tango such as Donato, D'Arienzo and Biagi. We also show some variations of the step.

The steps that we looked at both start with a rebound (rebote) from stepping outside partner in parallel system. In the first step, after the rebound, I step to the side and enter back crosses. In the second step, after the rebound, I turn and lead a very compact ocho cortado. This ocho cortado takes up almost no space and is sometimes called a "milonguero ocho cortado."

In this class, we focused on dancing to Edgardo Donato. Donato's music is very rhythmic and playful, so we try to express that in the dance. The explored several concepts, but the primary step we worked on starts with a crossover step, the leader going to the open side of the embrace and then switching to the close side with an empujadita.

In this class, we show one of our favorite steps. I love the flow of this step, it really feels great to lead and follow. I often describe it as a wave that is flowing over and around rocks. We are constantly going around one another and changing directions.
