The main focus of this class is the idea of having the follower change weight in order to enter into cross system rather than the leader. Then we added a short figure including a cruzada (cross), with a parada (stop) mordida (bite).

In this class, we show one of our favorite steps. I love the flow of this step, it really feels great to lead and follow. I often describe it as a wave that is flowing over and around rocks. We are constantly going around one another and changing directions.

In this class, we focused on Alterations (or Changes of Direction) to both sides of the embrace. The primary focus was on musicality. The first part of the step is very floaty and smooth, then the changes of direction are very rhythmic and the final part is smooth again. The changes of direction use the quick-quick-slow rhythm.

This is from our second week of "Single Axis Turns." This week we looked at initiating single axis turns from a colgada, barrida and boleo.

We looked at two different single axis turns, both turning clockwise or to the close side of the embrace.

Serpentina means snake like, because it looks like two snakes intertwined.
