Below is a collection of classes focusing on different variations of the Ocho Cortado:
A Sacada (displacement) is when one dancer steps into the space that their partner just vacated.
Alterations are when we change the direction of our movement. Alterations are also called Cambio de Frente (change of front).
La Calesita means "merry-go-round". This technique in tango refers to a step when one partner stays balanced on one foot while the other partner makes a perfect circle around them.
