(note to self: do more linear sacadas)
I will say this, to Mario. Often students have trouble with sacadas because the leader makes small, timid steps, allowing little room for his leg/foot. Taking a good bold step just prior to the sacada puts plenty of space between your partner's feet, making the sacada much easier.
Hey! Great tip! I'm going to remember that!
Sometimes words are good!
SOOOOO looking forward to dancing with you!:raisebro:
Yes, so often it's the step before where the real problem is occurring.
Oy! Chica! Back off! I swooned over the linear sacadas first.
Since we're talking Sacadas here...I'm going to go for this one shown twice in the first 20 seconds of this dance...going into and out of a (sort of) Ocho Cortado. I figure that getting one type of sacada right will at least let me know what it feels like and this one looks easy..(here we go again)

Ladies, calm down. I would hope there was enough sacadas for both of you.
Or as parents say... "Girls, girls.. you're BOTH pretty!"
yeah, but I bet I'll dance with Dchester first...
Is it my imagination or does the embrace change slightly in this dance right around the time he's done with those two sacadas?
It seems to me that they start in a fairly "directly in front" embrace, and in the process of doing the moves Mario is speaking of, and the next few moves afterwards, she shifts to his right and spends the rest of the dance offset.
Or is it an optical illusion based on viewing angle that she was ever directly in front to begin with?
I think so.
I suspect the pleasure would be all mine.
You think she shifts or you think its an illusion that she was ever NOT offset?
sigh... one day...
one day I'm going to dance with Angel too.
lots of traveling to do.
I think she was offset the whole time.
Yes, you. In this endless thread I'm only curious about you expanding on your knowledge on this, if you're willing to of course.
Is the easier part the one where she pulls out your back or the one where she pulls out your back?
Boston is in the east coast
um.... what was the question, again?
Separate names with a comma.
