In this seminar we will play with out-of-axis movements called Volcadas. We will learn small “volcaditas” which are useful for a crowded dance floor and also more dynamic volcadas in combination with other tango elements. We will discover:

  • how and where to begin volcadas

  • how to effectively position our bodies for light and safe movements

  • how to use and communicate through our embrace

  • how to combine volcadas with other tango elements
