Thanks for those who came. Also thanks to those who gave feedback. Here is a summary of what we did, with some clarifications, video resources and playlist. Next suelta practice – November 27th.

1) We started with some basic steps, we covered:

  • base
  • al lado
  • adelante
  • enchufla
  • vuelta
  • izquierda
  • base con viaje
  • camina
  • mambo
  • echevarria
  • cuatro rincon

2) Next we did some line dancing moves:

  • linea (una con una)
  • linea dos con dos
  • linea dos con una
  • “L”
  • “L” al reves
  • “L” doble (“L”  + “L” al reves)

I used a convention that may have confused some of you that all the linea moves were repeated unless another move was called. The “L” moves were done only once. We can decide in the future to use a different convention.

3) We then learned Sencillo – see video below.

4) We practiced tapping on the 4 and 8 with toe (moving forward) and heel (moving back). We also practiced tapping to the side.

5) We completed 2/3 of a routine Walter P. – see video below. I did teach the 1st part with the tap ending on 7 instead of 8 which is cool but somewhat harder. Next time we will follow the video.
