American Style Smooth Tango
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.
