Come ‘ere to me!

What is a cabeceo like? Here in Cork we are a very small group but we try our best to use cabeceo, mirada, etc, to dance with everyone in the group.

On our regular Sunday night I will dance with everyone but only those who respond to my cabaceo. There is a whole culture that you have understand. I might look across the crowded dance floor to nod my head. Now the woman might not be interested; might not see me; might be unable to see me or she is busy chatting away the tanda as her feet are tried.

They could be anyone or more of the reasons. What this video also captures is gender neutral nature of cabeco. It works both ways. And this is one of men to watch most intensely.
