Volcadas: in this section of Tango Terms we explore La Volcada (the capsize).
First, Le Volcada redefined:
Volcada capsize [vol-cah’-do/dah]
The man causes the woman to lean forward and drop from her axis before he catches her. Generally this also involves sweeping the follower's leg as a result of the off-axis motion.
The volcada requires that the lead takes the follower off her axis by the creation of a formation called the Carpa (tent), and whilst the volcada is executed, he supports the follower's weight. The follower needs to keep her spine extended, with the free leg kept loose so that as the lead pivots, his energy is reflected into the follower's leg. The follower's free foot is used to draw a shape on the floor as the lead rotates around her (she is kept in the centre), and the sketching of this shape should arise directly by the action and movements of the lead.
