"Oh, don't worry," he told me. "By the end of this lesson you'll have the steps completely down."
Okay, I failed the Canasta Tango because I FORGOT THE STEPS! I couldn't help but roll my eyes as I told him that.
He gave me a Cheshire Cat superior smile, because he was right, at the end of the lesson I had the steps down.
Here's his method.
The chasse's are all facing the shortboards. The swingrolls and progressives are facing the longboads.
The blue arrows represent facing the longboards. The red arrows represent facing the shortboards.
Once he pointed that out to me, I had the whole thing down in 15 minutes. AND AS GOD IS MY WITNESS I WON'T FORGET IT AFTER MY TEST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE....probably not.
