Bootcamp Tango | The art of Paradas
The parada is a very classic and famous "movement" within the tango. It is a very good moment for the follower to express her way of dancing and do something entirely hers, although very often it is not being used or even felt. During this bootcamp we will work on recognizing these moment and how to fill up the time as a follower. With the leaders we will work on creating a moment that does not feel like a stop so that it will feel like a part of the dance rather than a stop.
