One thing about making steps closer is, this may sound silly, is doing them close.
00:12
So, for example, if I'm doing a front ocho, I'm the girl. She's the guy. I'm the follower, rather.
00:16
And we're doing it this angle to the camera. I'm just going to start.
00:19
D: You can tell how I'm following, right? I'm following.
N: Right.
00:22
So, if I do this and you stop there, you'll see that there's a little bit of space between us.
00:28
So, this is a front ocho that's a little open.
00:31
N: That's why we call it "open" 'cause there's space.
D: Yeah. Yeah. Why we call it "open". If I do this, this is a front ocho,
00:36
That's much more close. Because, guess what? It's close.
00:41
So, as we do this combination, I want you to think it's just you do everything closer.
00:49
D: And that makes it close.
N: Ha-ha-ha.
00:54
So, we'll start with front ochos.
00:56
D: Is that right?
N: Yes.
00:58
D: Good.
N: It is.
D: I'm lucky.
N: Hm.
01:03
Here's stair-step. We have it in a separate video. I'm going to turn it so we stay in camera.
01:12
And then a pivot and we'll throw in an embellishment for the follower.
01:17
So, each of these has been shown in a different chapter.
01:21
In the... The front ochos, its own chapter. The stair-step is in a...we call it something about right angles.
01:29
And so you find the body is at the right angle. That's a stair-step. You can look at that chapter. We'll have this in the comments.
01:34
We actually did the stair-step with the boleo, I think, in an embellishments video, too.
01:39
And so, here, we're just putting them all together to say "This is something you can do in a way that's very close,
01:44
And yet still more of a salon style. So, we'll show that again.
01:48
N: That was what I was going to say.
D: I love you.
N: Love you.
01:55
And I'm going to cheat so we get the right place in camera.
02:06
Here's your different angle.
