Argentine Tango is composed of several dances each with multiple flavors. This article will teach you the slower Salon Style Argentine Tango. We will start with the Basic step, adding progressively advanced figures and a few show embellishments. Please moderate your patterns for the social dance floor. Kicks and dips should be left to the larger ballroom floors where the crowd is composed of ballroom or show dancers. The demonstrators here are blessed with a large floor with plenty of space so we can have a bit of fun with our styling.
The most important figure is of course the Tango Walk, you must develop your own walk with a controlled weight change and a feeling of gravitas. Dancing the feeling of the music is key, not only must you dance on beat but the mood of the music must be shown in your movements.
Begin with the figures presented here paying attention to the Leading and Following tips. This will speed up your learning of the Tango. Collect some quality music for practice and dancing pleasure. Try to locate an Authentic instructor as near to your location as possible and search for a Milonga to attend.
