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).

This step is a very famous and popular move in the milongas of Buenos Aires, Argentina. Many, if not all, of the older milongueros perform this step. The joy of this move is in the musicality and the swoosh feeling it gives the followers during the dips (changes of our vertical plane). Everytime I teach this move, it always recieves lots of positive feedback from the followers. They love it.

This step is part of our Popular Steps for the Social Dance Floor series. The interesting thing about this step is that while walking (caminata) the followers keep switching sides and switching systems (parallel vs cross) during the step.
