Level 2b Intensive Study Program focuses on the opposite gendered role in a 1-on-1 format with Miles Tangos. In this series of 18 sessions you will go far deeper into the kinesthetic awareness of the opposite gendered role. If you’re a male lead, then we’ll go deeper into the foundation of the follower’s role of forward, side, back, embrace, disassociation, and applied disassociation, and work it till your following skills are pleasurable to dance with! If you’re a female follower, then it’s time to step up the game to refresh your memory on the 6 ways of walking, ochos, turns, and crosses! You will be pressed to refresh your musical knowledge and now we take it to the next level of phrases and phrasing.
