Tango lessons 21 to 36: The professional techniques

Tuesday, December 14, 2010 · Category Art & Culture · comments 0


By the time I get to this level I may be some years from now unless .... I keep to Tango on a weekly basis or even better; twice to three times a week. Watching others and than trying yourself teaches you much of the combination of using technique in conjunction with the music itself. You get to start listening to the music and you don't have to worry about the steps no more.

Advanced Tango styles and techniques

Ballroom tango steps stay close to the floor, while the Rio de la Plata Tango (Uruguayan and Argentine) includes moves such as the boleo (allowing momentum to carry one's leg into the air) and gancho (hooking one's leg around one's partner's leg or body) in which the feet travel off the ground. Both Uruguayan and Argentine tango features other vocabulary foreign to ballroom, such as the parada (in which the leader puts his foot against the follower's foot), the arrastre (in which the leader appears to drag or be dragged by the follower's foot), and several kinds of sacada (in which the leader displaces the follower's leg by stepping into her space).
