Rueda – Contrario
This a rueda were every second lead change partner in the opposite direction ie contrario means opposite. When the command “contrario” is used the leads are divided in two teams with one team moving in the direction of abajo and the other team in arriba.

Rueda - dos Pareja
This a rueda with only 2 couples, even though it feels less like a circle, you still can do a lot of the standard and new figures in the comfort of just 2 couples. This type of rueda comes in very handy if you happen to be at a cross body party and your struggling for leads and followers.
