Seeing a couple who dance tango is a show that no one wants to miss. Did you know there are two ways to dance it? We tell you what they are.
Like any other dance, one can learn to dance tango. But once the basic movements are handled, you also have to learn to feel the tango . Which is not the same. Tango requires a connection between the couple , it is two intertwined bodies, in dialogue. But how do you dance tango ? There are two ways to do this: walking or figuratively.
The tango caminado is the most danced in the milongas . In this variant, the hug is always closed: the couple dance with the upper body glued. It consists of moving around the track in an anti-clockwise direction, walking to the beat of music, and interspersing in the walk eights, ornaments and some simple figures. This type of tango is closed: it is danced inwards, isolating itself from the outside. It focuses on music and the couple.
Tango caminado has a lot of improvisation , which is given with the feeling of music . The woman constantly follows the mark of the man, which is not easy considering, precisely, that he is improvising his steps. That is why it is so important to dance very closely and learn to score, especially with the torso. It is also possible to use hands, arms and even legs.
The tango with figures is the one that is danced in the ballroom dance halls. It's the one we usually see in tango shows . It is structured, like other dances, in base step and figures: the base step is done constantly and the figures that the couple know how to perform are interspersed. The hug is open, since to perform the figures it is necessary to separate from the partner. The marking is usually made with hands and arms. Tango with figures is danced outward : dancers are more concerned from outside than from music. It is a tango less felt than the caminado, but more colorful and spectacular.
