Giro in parallel and cross system | Intermediate Argentine Tango | 4 classes


Event Types

Main focus:
giros in parallel and cross system

  • Separation/isolation of movement in the upper and lower body.

*Continuity of rotation and torsion in lead and follow.

*Basic giro to the left and to the right in parallel and cross system from the back cross.

*Principles of parallel and cross-system while turning.

Giro is a tango turn where the Follower (usually) travels around the Leader, who is also turning but essentially becomes the center of the turn.

The giro can happen in place (affixed axes) or allow the couple to travel (traveling axes).

Giro means turn but there are many versions of the turn. Can go to the left or to the right, can start with front cross or back cross, or even from the open step if you really like it. Can travel around an affixed axis (or single-axis - that's when you do lapiz) or traveling axis when the leader moves using the sacadas.

Giro is one of the most essential elements that you just know to speak Tango.

Deconstructing giros is the essence of Intermediate courses. Once the couple can turn they really start dancing. Therefore… mastering the giro is the key to making your tango fluent.

Once you know the giro, you can take your tango shoes wherever you go. You are ready to dance the tango around the world.
