Tango, a sophisticated dance
Although the first steps of tango were improvised on the streets, nowadays the dance have reached an incomparable level of sophistication. There are shows that go around the world but, it is especially at the milongas’ dance floor where the most experienced amateurs express themselves.
Tango is danced in couples, a sensual and complex improvisation with rules and codes. The first tango rule is caminar (to walk) around the dance floor anticlockwise. The man goes forward, first the chest, then the knee and finally the foot. He marks the rhythm delicately suggesting his partner the elegance of the movements and figures. The woman “listens to him”, allows him to lead with absolute trust.
