As we break down the pattern of Kenny's lesson, having spent a class on different approach to the mordida, we will next work on barridas (sweeps).    This Week's Video summarizing their class remains relevant. . 
Much tango outside Modesto coming in Northern California as tango masters visit. Luciana Valle will be in the Bay Area in September, Susanna Miller is in the bay area in August, Johanna Copes in San Francisco for a day of women's technique. Many chamces.  And Eduardo Saucedo coming to Modesto.
