How are you managing Gender-balance/Role-balance?
Due to our workshop methodology, gender/role balance is not an issue. Therefore, we have no limits to the numbers of leaders or followers who register.

What are the Códigos?
Save your high boleos, ganchos and flashy maneuvers for another venue. We keep the embrace close, the floor cozy, and maintain our lanes and line of dance. Here are our Codes of Etiquette:

  • We dance with a warm, respectful and close embrace
  • We invite women to dance via “Cabeceo” from a respectful distance
  • We enter the dance floor, Leader-first, also using “Cabeceo”
  • We follow the line of dance, in a counter-clockwise direction
  • We do not zig-zag around the dance floor, nor do we obstruct the flow
  • We try not to step against the line of dance, always moving forward
  • We avoid hitting other dancers by keeping our feet near the floor
  • We neither teach nor instruct nor correct on the dance floor
  • We avoid dancing above our partner’s comfort level
  • We always treat each other with great respect
