The Tango: Improvising Romance
Grab a partner, lace up your shoes, and check out Groupon’s guide to the tango to step in style.
The tango begins with an embrace, and the more natural and full of affection, the more successful the dance will likely be. The lead’s right hand holds the follower’s left securely but not forcefully; the follower relaxes into it, with a hand on the lead’s waist, in tune but ready to improvise. Music strikes up. The dancers follow the rhythm or melody, reacting to what they feel together. With the spine straight, chest lifted, and head level, the lead starts to walk, briskly or slowly, building the foundation of the dance with sweeping or staccato footwork punctuated by long pauses that add drama and give the follower a chance to grab a canapé.
From here, innumerable variations unfold in a cascade of short sequences that the lead mixes and matches to convey whatever message is desired and to help navigate a crowded floor. The Argentinian and the Uruguayan tango, the American-ballroom and the international-ballroom style each have their own vocabulary of moves. The international-ballroom tango, for instance, contains the familiar quick steps and dramatic head snaps, whereas the tango vals is characterized by rotation, with the follower dancing small circles around the leader.
