Tango: Parada & Barrida Sequences(Int./ Adv. Level)

Parada is “stop” in Spanish. Most often the leader stops the follows either on cross steps or open steps. There are many foot games one can play and allow a vast array of embellishments. Barrida means sweep or a sweeping motion. Most often it is done by one partner's foot sweeping and placing it without losing contact. It too can start and finish from cross steps or open steps. Together, Parada and barrida bring out a lot of possibilities to your dancing. They are fun, easy, and very cool to do on the dance floor!
