Description:


Enchufala Y Dame is a rueda move composed of a regular Enchufala and swapping partners immediately. More than the move itself it's important to understand the Y Dame part since it can be called after a lot of moves and the principal is the same. For example Enchufala Complicado Y Dame would be an Enchufala Complicado and then the Y Dame is just the same as shown here.
The Steps:
1. On 1 2 3 perform a regular Enchufala.
2. On 5 6 7 instead of entering a closed formation a swap is made. The boy's part can be a little quick at times. On 5 the boys take their right foot a bit backwards and on the 6 7 they take two steps forward and a bit to the left in order to pass the girl from within the rueda and meet with the next girl. The girls part is much easier, 3 steps in place, right left right and the boy will appear by himself. by the next 1 beat the swap is done and a Dile Que No is usually done but closed formation is also quite popular.
* Sometimes the space between couples is significant and reaching the next girl with two steps is almost impossible, that oaky as long that on the 1 beat of the next eight count you already start with the Dile Que No even if you haven't made it to a closed formation hold by this beat, just enter the right formation on the fly usually on the second beat. Also make sure to use big steps and you might avoid this all the same.
