Enchufala Arriba is very similiar to the more common used Enchufala Y Dame. The difference is that in Enchufala Arriba the leader moves one follower ahead instead of back.
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 by doing a Dame Abajo. The leader's part can be a little quick at times and of need of bigger steps than in Enchufala Y Dame. 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 right in order to pass the follower to the left from within the rueda and meet with the next follower. The followers 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.
