Figures (even the sacada) are made with round movements, but both bodies turn like they are in orbit. As the follower turns, the leader does it too, so there is little space in the middle, not used by any of them.
The figure we will teach now, Medialuna (half moon), is the first one where the leader stays as the axis in the center so that the follower can turn around it.
After changing the step and entering backward ochos, when the follower goes to the leader's right with the left leg, the leader comes into with the right foot with a sacada to the follower left foot's internal side. In this way, an axis is fixed, as a reference point so that the follower can continue this backward crossing with an opening and a front crossing around it.
The leader manages to make a 180° turn and stays with the back looking at the dancing line. The follower is on the side after having made the last forward crossing, so it must look for the leader's front with half an ocho.
Once facing each other, there is a front stop and they look for the dancing line, as in a Sanguchito.
At the moment of the sacada, the leader has led the follower with the right arm about the direction and intensity of movements. The efficiency of contact that exists on the leader's right side posture is evident here.
This leading allows the leader to get ready to turn, because, for turning, it is always necessary that the body turns before the legs. If legs turned first, it would be difficult to take the trunk to the new position of the support points.
Turning requires to be made with legs joint together from the beginning and vertical position must be maintained without lifting the heels too much. They almost graze the floor.
