8c. Rocking Turns with Small Boleos

In this figure, a boleo is added to the rocking turns taught in the level 1 tutorial.

THE LEADER does a rock with a quarter turn into a back ocho, but he turns this back ocho into a boleo. He does another quarter turn as he leads the follower out of the boleo. If he does this figure 2 times, he can walk out of it in the line of dance.

THE FOLLOWER's skills are challenged by this move because it involves quick changes of direction. You will be successful with it if you concentrate on staying balanced and connected with your partner. Focus on following your partner's chest and avoid the temptation to anticipate the footwork. If you concentrate on these fundamentals, this complex figure will flow smoothly.
