Lucio Arce has an authentic caberet feeling to his guitar playing and singing. There are overtones, sometimes, of jazz and playfulness.

00:03
This combination is not easy...
00:05
..which seems unfair
because it looks deceptively easy.
00:09
We'll start off, same as often...
00:12
..cross system, side, he changes.
00:13
Here, I'll take a step slightly bigger than hers...
00:15
..so that then I can have her take another...
00:17
..and we can exit together.
00:19
So one more time. Same angle
00:21
Seems like I'm always saying:
we teach kooky steps.
00:30
And I think that it's really marvellous, once again,...
00:32
..that we can be so together, when we're
doing things that are so not together.
00:36
Except they are.
00:39
So describing that...
00:41
..side, I change, we're good.
00:42
Here, when I step forward, I'm going to
rotate a little bit...
00:44
..and I'm going to reach further
with my left foot.
00:46
And you'll see, I'm keeping my body weight
a little bit back.
00:49
So that when I shift my body forward over the left foot
back, that could correspond to her step...
00:53
..and then we could go together.
Her second step.
00:55
So I take two and he takes one.
00:58
Not easy.
01:00
But kind of fun. I guess I say that a lot, too.
01:04
For the followers, you want to follow
the movement of his center of gravity...
01:08
..not just his foot, because his
center of gravity doesn't move much here.
01:11
And then as it shifts, there's your second.
01:15
For the leaders, here afterwards I dig down under,
to contrast that.
01:19
Just showing without all this verbage.
