Turns Sequences – Ivan’s Famous ¾ Turn

A favorite movement for many dancers, the ¾ turn creates a lovely rotated dynamic for the follower. And is extremely useful to change direction in the ronda. So not only helpful but very much appreciated by the ladies. What more could we want?

Turns Sequences – Modified Doughnut Turn

Did you love the doughnut from the technique section as much as we did? Well, here is your chance to love it even more!! Using the doughnut to create a turn will allow you to turn on a dime – goodbye running into people in the ronda, hello super-turn!

Enrosque Sequences: Embellishment + Front Enrosque Turning Backwards

While enrosques for followers can be led, like we saw in the first video, they can also be embellished. So while the followers embellish on their forward ocho, the leaders have a challenging front enrosque turning backwards!! You were asking for it, you get it!

Lapiz Sequences – The Fancy Follower Lapiz (led, and as an embellishment)

Instead of doing a simple calesita from a back step of the follower, followers can embellish and create a beautiful lapiz! And if you want to show this as partnerwork, then leaders can also create this movement for the follower. Lead or embellished, the movement is definitely worth learning!
