While the usual classes are suspended, I will be uploading practice videos as requested, to Tangolicious Online, my new Youtube Channel. You can see the first video, on basic ocho technique, here:
Some tips for your ocho practice:
- Try to maintain your shoulders facing fowards
- Keep your shoulders relaxed
- Elongate your torso to create space for the hips
- Your back should stay straight, no arching back or ribs
- Always pivot on the ball of one foot only
- Keep your weight on the foot you stepped with until pivot complete
- Do not change weight when you collect
- Remember to collect your feet after stepping
- Ankles, knees and thighs are together when you collect/pivot
If you would like to send me a practice video for commentary or have any questions, please email or message me!
