Cross System of Tango. Lesson 11
Dance Conmigo offers private and group classes.
Cross system occurs when the leader and follower are both stepping simultaneous with their right foot or their left foot.
In its more fundamental form, the leader does a syncopation on "2" to change his weight from one foot to the other. At a given moment, the dancers go back to their regular "Parallel System"
In this video, the leader does a syncopation on "2" , they both do 3 and 4 and then, either the leader make a pause to allow time for the follower to go back into parallel system, or the follower does a syncopation on "5" to catch up with the leader.
