This is part 1 of a series in vals (waltz). In this class, we look at vals with a special emphasis on finding the 1 (the strong beat) and then using either the 2 or the 3 (the weak beats).

In this class, we focused on Alterations (or Changes of Direction) to both sides of the embrace. The primary focus was on musicality. The first part of the step is very floaty and smooth, then the changes of direction are very rhythmic and the final part is smooth again. The changes of direction use the quick-quick-slow rhythm.

This is another step in our series on "Steps for the Social Dance Floor." These are steps that should work well on the social dance floor. They compliment the connection between the dancers, their connection with the music and with the other dancers on the dance floor. We originally thought of this step as being an intermediate figure, but later found it was more of an advanced figure, which requires a lot of precision and subtlety. It also includes a nice embellishment for the men after leading the cruzada.

In this class, we examine the basic technique for a gancho and then look at some creative ganchos such as reverse ganchos and twisty ganchos. We also combined the gancho with boleos and colgadas.

This class was the second in our series on Soltadas. We focused on building compression within the embrace and using an impulse to create expansion. As always, this video does not cover everything we talked about in the class, but tries to cover some of the major concepts. We also discussed how these concepts can be applied to our more traditional tango.

In this class we looked at Soltadas from the back cross. Soltadas are releases of the embrace. We break our embrace temporarily to perform a soltada.
