How to Tango

As one of the sexiest, most passionate things you can do while still standing upright, the tango takes romance. It takes drama. And it definitely takes two.

A dance partner
  • Patience
  • Melodrama

Step 1 Stand in closed position Decide who will be Partner A and who will be Partner B. Stand so that A faces B with his left arm up at a 45-degree angle, and his right hand in the middle of B’s back. In turn, B mirrors A, holding her right arm up against A’s left, and resting her left hand on B’s right arm.

Traditionally, A’s steps are performed by a man, and B’s steps are performed a woman.

Step 2 Get used to the beat The tango has a special rhythm to it: slow, slow, quick-quick, slow. Get more familiar with the rhythm by repeating this out loud several times.

You can also count out the rhythm by saying:1, 2, 3-and, 4T, A, N-G, OOr walk, walk, tan-go, close

Step 3 Step forward or back on the “1” Assuming you’re counting using the “1, 2, 3-and, 4″ method, “1” will symbolize your first beat. On the “1,” A should step forward on his left foot, while B steps backward on her right foot.

Step 4 Step in the same direction on the “2” On the “2,” A steps forward with his right foot, while B steps backward with her left foot.

Step 5 Take another step in the same direction on the “3” On the “3,” A should step forward on his left foot, while B steps backward on her right foot.

Step 6 Side step on the “and” On the “and,” A steps to his right side with his right foot, while B steps to her left with her left foot.

Step 7 Close on the “4” On the “4,” A’s left foot closes next to his right foot, while B’s right foot closes next to her left foot.

Step 8 Practice and repeat Practice these steps until they’re comfortable, and repeat the sequence throughout the course of the song.

Step 9 Add some drama The tango is a passionate dance, and both partners should feel free to sell the fire and the drama. Look away from your partner! Clench a rose between your teeth! And have fun showing off the romance of the tango!
