Wednesday magic!

This Wednesday we will be into the fifth week of the Beginner Course**, from 7.30 to 8.30, when Laura and Mike will re-visit the forward and backward ocho and introduce the parada and a pasada.  

Parada - to stop.  The leader (usually the man) stops the follower (usually the woman), preventing further movement.

Pasada - passing over.  When the leader has stopped the follower with foot contact, an invitation is given for the follower to step forward over the leader's extended foot.  A pasada provides an opportunity for the follower to add adornments, if given time.

There will be a 15 minute dance interval to practice before the Improver/Intermediate class at 8.45. Keeping in the 'Changes of Direction' theme, Laura and Mike will explore 'rebotars' - bounces, for playful changes of direction.  The evening will finish with half and hour of dancing time.

We look forward to seeing you!
