In this seminar we will explore the out-of-axis movements called volcadas.  We will learn small “volcaditas” and also more dynamic volcadas in combination with other tango elements.  We will discover how to begin volcadas, how to effectively position our bodies, and how to use our embrace to create volcadas that feel light, safe and easy.
