The Advanced Class
Movement and Touch
In the first picture, Diana begins with her left leg forward, and out to her left.
Then she brings it back and in so that her ankles brush together...
... and then moves back out as El Gallego leads her back out to her left once again, where she
places her foot on the floor. No matter where he leads her, she will always bring
her ankles together, and slow them slightly as they pass.
Graciela reaches and rolls onto the ball of her foot.
Graciela’s leg remains straight, and the toes and ankle absorb the initial contact with the floor.
The arrow shows that Gerardo can instantly feel when her foot touches the floor.
Most milongueras keep the heel of the weight bearing foot down when possible.
