110 MIN INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO
Technique for Followers with Rebecca Shulman
In this two hour tour de force Rebecca shares her incredibly comprehensive and articulate approach to analyzing the mechanics of the follower's part. She covers the basics of walking, ochos, and turns and adds subtle fine points for serious practice. There are sections on posture, ganchos, boleos, and embellishments. Exercises are taught at the bar, walking on one's own, and with a partner. (Daniel assists for partnering demonstrations.) This video is an important resource for both leaders and followers who wish to deepen their understanding of tango. Produced and edited by Daniel Trenner. (110 mins.)
