Mastering Tango – Secadas and Entradas Workshop

Book now to avoid disappointment!

This workshop continues the series of ‘Mastering tango’ workshops. Each workshop can be taken independently.

Sacadas and Entradas can add elegance and sophistication to your dance, if they are performed with the correct technique, and with some style. If the lead or follow is poor they can make a sacada/entrada movement look forced and unbalanced.

This one and a half hour workshop looks at the technical difference between entradas and sacadas, entradas as a leaders decoration, sacadas in the tango walk, sacadas in ochos, and sacadas in a giro.

It is for improvers to intermediate level, and is ideal for couples wishing to expand their technique and musicality for this beautiful, sophisticated and elegant dance.

It takes two to tango, so this workshop will be role balanced (equal leaders and followers) as far as possible. If you don’t have a partner, please visit my Facebook Page, find this event and post a comment to see if anyone is looking for a partner too.

The workshop will cover as much of the following as time allows

  • The technical difference between Entradas and Secadas
  • Entradas as a Leaders Decoration
  • Sacadas in the Tango Walk
  • Sacadas in Ochos (both Front and Back)
  • Sacadas in a Giro

By the end of the workshop my aim is to have you dancing an Argentine Tango, using smooth entradas and secadas in a variety of figures, to a traditional tango tune.

Places are limited (10 people only) so you need to book and pay for your place below to guarantee entry. Please don’t attend without booking (we might be too full to let you in), and please don’t book without attending (you might be blocking a place that someone else could use instead)!

If you miss out on this workshop, we are planning more in the area later in the year, subject to demand.

What to bring: your usual dance shoes, clothing to allow free movement, and any refreshments you may wish to consume.
