David is a remarkable dancing coach. Not only am I learning to dance but it has helped with back and feet pain that I have had for years. Not only have my body aches and pains gone but I have also lost quite a lot of weight and feel better for it. ~ Emme Y.M Tsang

Tango Terminology

Molinete — Windmill; wheel: A figure in which the lady dances a grapevine on a circumference around the man, stepping side-forward-side-back using forward and back ocho technique and footwork, as the man pivots at the centre of the figure. This is a very common figure in tango which challenges both the man and the lady to maintain good posture, balance, and technique in order to perform it well.
