8:30-9:45p Power your OCHO^8 : pivot step pivot step …
A class for 1+ quarter seasoned dancers😛, especially with intermediate classes in the future
After we’ve got pivoting down, we’ll use the pivot in cool movements, like ochos and/or molinette!
Interested in the performance team? We’re having our first Spring quarter practice before the class (7p) in Koret. Tango experience beneficial, but not required; we’ve had people join after their second class and others after their second year. No requirement to perform if you come to practices; we practice movements and practice dancing to songs. The performance team is only open to Stanford students.
