Sacada with Change of Direction

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 another step in our series on "Steps for the Social Dance Floor." These are steps that should work well on the social dance floor. They compliment the connection between the dancers, their connection with the music and with the other dancers on the dance floor. We originally thought of this step as being an intermediate figure, but later found it was more of an advanced figure, which requires a lot of precision and subtlety. It also includes a nice embellishment for the men after leading the cruzada.

In this class, we took requests from our students and worked on concepts that they wanted to work on. Each couple had their own things that they wanted to work on and this demo puts them all together.

In this class, we start by walking with the leaders changing weight without leading the women to change weight. Then we walk and switch to cross system and perform small sacadas as we walk.

A back sacada (displacement) is when one dancer steps backwards into the space that their partner just vacated.

This video covers two classes worth of material. The first was on finding the middle part of each step and being able to shift her weight back and forth between her legs without resolving the step, until we are ready. In the second class, we look at forward & back sacadas for the leaders and forward sacadas for the followers.
