Understanding the Grammar of Change of Direction - It's not what you expected.
We explored the true meaning of Change of Direction and introduced two combinations that create the unexpected. This is the theme for the next 4 weeks - Exploring the potential of moves and keeping the dance interesting with the unexpected changes!


Week 4 (19.9.16)

Milonga Traspie:
We reviewed moves  from Week 3 and focused on musical phrasing.
We studied the following milongas and noted that in some the phrasing was very punctuated and with others it was much more subtle. We then explored how that would affect the dancing of each song.
  • 'Cap 13 Milongon'
  • 'Yo Soy de San Telmo' - by Di Sarli
  • 'Silueta Portena' - by D'Arienzo 
  • 'La Milonga que Hacia Falta' - by Donato 

Week 3 (12.9.16)

Milonga Traspie: 
We reviewed the walking turn step and added rebote steps.
