This class explores linked giros to the close side of the embrace (clockwise turns) ending with a volcada.
This class explores a small volcada after a giros to the close side of the embrace (clockwise turns).
In this class, we look at some interesting and creative ways to switch into and out of cross system using a follower's weight change.
Intermediate Milonga Classes
This class covers the material from one of our workshops on advanced volcadas. We look at linked volcadas, side volcadas, and with leg wraps. We discuss the difference between a shoulder lead and a more flat chested lead in Volcadas.
A Volcada is when the woman is lead completely off of her vertical axis to lean forward into the man with her free leg floating forward. In this class we will look at Forward and Back Volcadas with different resolutions such as Cruzada, Calesita and Boleo.
In this class, we focus on the leaders switching back and forth between parallel and cross system while leading the followers to perform back ochos. This step works well in both vals (tango waltz) and rhythmic tangos.
