Deciphering parallel and cross system
Parallel system is when partner’s left leg works on front of your right and partner’s right leg walk in front of your left. Cross system allows right leg to walk with partner’s right leg and left leg with partner’s left leg. Everything is possible in tango!
The little twist of cross system introduces infinite amount of possibilities as special relationship between partners is changed and modified by adding or suspending just one step.
Just walking in parallel system gives 4-8 possibilities, adding cross system generates additional 4-8.
We will be deciphering parallel and cross system. When and how the system changes and what are the consequences. How to smoothly transition from one to the other. What figures become possible once the cross system opens up for us.
By mastering cross system you are opening the door of never ending possibilities. No other dance uses cross system, opposition and circular lead to that extend. Welcome to the secret world of Tango.
