New Video! Free Leg Exercises

I’ve put together a video of the free leg exercises with pica, patadita and boleo that we practised at the end of Wednesday’s class. Although the low leg footwork is more often used in tango, the higher leg helps to free the movement and work on control and modulation of momentum, so both are covered here.

Ocho Practice Video

Following on from the adornments we practised at the end of yesterday’s class on Zoom, I have put together a short video showing some of the embellishments covered and a couple of new ones.

 

Tips for practice:

  • Keep your shoulders facing the wall as much as possible when pivoting
  • Feel the spine lengthen to help with dissociation from the hips
  • Collect tightly in ankles and knees as applicable depending on the adornment
  • Make sure pivoting is done on the ball of one foot only

This Week’s Video: Ocho Cortado Practice

Wednesday’s online class focused on technique relating to the Ocho Cortado, which also incorporates the previous week’s Rock Step. This week’s video details exercises for refining the elements as well as showing the leaders’ and followers’ steps.

Tips For Followers:

  • Make sure to follow the leader’s shoulders to avoid over-turning in the side pivot before the cross and keep some weight in the toe of your right foot
  • Use the rotation in the hips to pivot back from the side step into a neat cross
  • Try out the adornments in the video. The double step needs to be executed in double time so as to keep in time with the lead and music
  • Change weight immediately when you cross to ensure a clean resolution step

 

Tips for Leaders:

  • Give a clear lead when coming out of the rock step into the side pivot
  • The timing: accent on 1,2,3 – accent on 4,5,6 should translate as rock step, forward – side, return, cross for your partner (back step instead of forward and collect instead of cross for the leader
  • Leaders can also try crossing back instead of collecting when the follower crosses, before the resolution
