After Class Demos

We shot these videos after some of our classes as reminders of what we did for those that were there, and so unline the Tango Course videos they have little to no explanation in them.

Please ensure you have reviewed our Terms and Conditions before attempting any of the moves or techniques shown in these videos.

Giro with sacadas, a gancho, and a soltada

5th Mar 2020

A 'soltada' is a move where the leader disconnects from the follower for a moment so they can reposition. It may be used for pivots, promenades around your partner, or - like in this case - to get into position for a reverse carried-gancho.
