What you'll learn in this dance class:

Boleo derives from the verb bolear, to throw. It comes from the tool called LARIAT that gauchos used to capture the animals. It is a set of 3 various lengths ropes weighted at the free end and tied together. Thrown sideways it wraps around the target capturing it. 

Since pronunciation of B and V in Spanish is very similar sometimes you can see the name of the figure written as Voleo. Voleo comes from the verb volear, to volley, punch, or strike, especially with a racquet, paddle, or open hand as in volleyball.

Boleo is activated by reversing a pivot causing dancer’s leg to swing out and return in similar to whipping motion.Axis of the Follower are extremely important. Since one leg is flying, the standing one shall be firmly on the ground with no balance issues.

Depending on musical interpretation and specific effect we wish to achieve the accent of the boleo, its culmination, can come on the beat or off the beat. Each lead has its own characteristics.
