Volcada…. Remember long, long time ago when you were a Beginner Follower and for the first time you’ve seen THAT STEP where the women falls softly into her partner’s arms and her leg miraculously swings in a beautiful perfect circle ending up in a perfect cross and perfect axes to flawlessly transition into the next step….
And then… auuuch…. Uh… auch… somebody actually lead you to volcada, but you were not ready! And hey – he was not ready either.
What happens next is epic! He doesn’t want to dance with you claiming you are extremely heavy and you broke his back. You do not want to dance with him either and you are going around complaining that some i***t just broke your back cause he has no idea what he is doing. Sounds familiar?
If so you might find the next Advanced cycle quite interesting. VOLCADAS.
In Volcada the Leader takes the Follower off the axis by creating Carpa (tent). During execution of Volcada, Leader supports the follower’s weight by leveraging his own weight and not necessarily through his super hero muscles. The follower needs to keep her spine extended, with the free leg kept loose and relaxed so it can draw the shape on the floor.
Volcadas come in different shapes based on Leader’s creativity (and ability). V-shaped wedge, a big sweeping C usually ending with the cross, circle (caused by rotation of the couple with Follower’s being its center) and more.
Volcadas can travel! Either by transferring the weight from leg to leg leading from Volcada into the next one. Or by short drag.
Starting Sunday 03/19 Advanced Combinations with Volcadas. You shall NOT be taking this class if you never ever took Volcada class before (like for example our pre-advanced Volcada class that introduced you to the subject). The idea is to work on more advanced combinations, though we will review the basics of course for obvious reasons.
If you ready, please keep in mind that this is progressive class. If you wanna learn TAKE ALL 8 CLASSES. Do not put your partner in danger and discomfort by skipping the classes and missing crucial information.
