American Style Smooth Tango
 
Brief Description
Tango is earthy and dramatic. Although walking 
movements dominate, Tango walks, having a "stalking" 
or "sneaking" character, are unlike the walks of other 
ballroom dances. Movements are sometimes slow 
and slithery, and other times sharp and stacatto, such 
as a quick foot flick or a sharp head snap to promenade 
position. Tango has the same counter clockwise flow 
of movement around the dance floor, but with a 
lesser sense of urgency in comparison to the smoother 
and more continuous ballroom dances. American Style Tango, 
especially at highly-developed skill levels, makes great 
use of open and alternate dance positions to further 
showcase Tango's dramatic nature.
