Nicola Medic of Havana Belgrado, Serbia, created this way for the leaders to criss-cross in opposite directions instead of the normal or pa’rriba direction. Requirements:

  • even number of couples
  • Leaders must understand “arriba” and “abajo” directions
  • Followers must be ready to get a new Leader in either direction
  • Everyone must know WHICH version of Contrario is called.

Danger … collisions possible! All leaders MUST understand the call and be able to execute it without crashing into a leader coming from the opposite direction.
