Sexy leg wraps and ganchos

Technique Booster  - Sunday 30th June 2013

with Joe Hudson                                           

The subject of this Technique Booster workshop is leg wraps and ganchos - including guidance on posture and connection to make such movements easy, playful and expressive.

Leg wraps, one of the quintessential tango movements, along with ganchos, have an especially high 'satisfaction factor'. They just feel and look great, when danced with good technique and with the music. Because of that a lot of dancers want to use them, and often get frustrated when it doesn't feel or look as good as they'd hoped.

The aim of this workshop is to share some recipes for dancing a variety of leg wraps and ganchos with confidence and style. We'll look at specific movements you can use in your social dancing (whether you prefer 'salon style', 'nuevo' or just like to do your own thing) along with the principles at work behind them.

For the recent beginner and intermediate tango dancer, this will be a good foundation for leg wraps and ganchos, and for more advanced dancers there will be some more challenging and unusual variations for you to have fun with.
