Leading Ladies (AB or above)

For women who want to explore the leading role.  One of the best ways to understand what the leaders need from you is to try leading!  Learning to lead enriches a woman's relationship with the music and taps her gifts of assertiveness and decision-making which she can then bring artistically back into her following.  Many women find that knowing the leading role gives them more choices and freedom in the milonga, particularly when leaders are scarce.

For men who want to explore the following role.  Legend has it that at one time, men were only allowed to dance with each other, at the men’s practicas of Buenos Aires, until they were skilled enough to go to the milongas and dance with women.  Men who study the following role possess a greater awareness of their partner and adapt more readily to her movement and unique responses.
