..............................................................................Milonga con traspie

These notes summarise a milonga con traspie course given in three parts by Rodolfo Aguerrodi & Miho Omaki in Cambridge in 2001 and 2002.

 

We began individually in close embrace with a basic forward nudge movement led from the leader's chest; weight well forward onto ball/toes of feet; starting on a strong beat and always moving forward with two very short half steps

 

 

 
       

Begining with the left foot:

   
   

Quick - Left foot nudges forward a few cm past the right foot;

Quick - Right foot nudges back a few cm keeping torso forward;

Slow - Left foot nudges forward a few cm more;

Then with the right foot:

   
   

Quick - Right foot nudges forward a few cm past the left foot;

Quick - Left foot nudges back a few cm keeping torso forward;

Slow - Right foot nudges forward a few cm more.

Then repeating the above (many times):

   
    L R L _; R L R _;

We then practised a basic sideways movement; weight well forward onto ball/toes of feet; starting on a strong beat and always moving the groin sideways as if a pendulum pivotted within the chest
