What you'll learn in this tango class:

In exact translation gancho means a hook. In tango the gancho is an element executed by flexing and swinging the free leg around … an obstacle. The leg ‘bends itself’ as it meets the obstacle during its trajectory of movement. 

Traditional gancho can be executed either to the inside or outside of the partner's supporting leg, though modern technique also allow us to perfrom the gancho in the center between the partner's legs. 

Engancho (Wrap) is a very interesting Tango element as it can be added and danced in almost any situation – both stage and social, in crowded and very open spaces and they always look good. 

In a wrap the leg of – usually - follower softly wraps around the leg of the leader. The most obvious wraps are executed from back ocho / low boleo sensation. 

Then we proceed into more wrapping/unwrapping possibilities. Wrap is a very pleasant step as it doesn’t required neither visual nor actual impulse. Happens by torsions, correct feet placement and timely weight transfer. All this ‘nothing’ to generate amazingly sensual experience to emphasize music and mood of the dance.
