La Parada

  • For the Media Luna, remember to turn the torso (open the right shoulder)
  •  to the right before stepping 
  • For the abanico remember to turn the shoulders first then step to get her leg to come around for the abanico
  • focus on the 3 points of connection: left hand, right hand and torso
  • keep the same amount of energy in both hands
  • relax the arm and elbow but keep hands engaged
