Dear tango dancer,

There are A LOT of contradicting assumptions out there when it comes to the tango walk

… that it’s only for beginners and once you’ve learned it you should focus on more sophisticated steps

… that the importance of mastering your tango walking has been “invented” by tango teachers to keep having work…

… or, worst of all, that it’s the hardest thing about tango and it takes a lifetime to master

None of these things are true, but today I’d like to focus on that last one.

Because yes, finding a beautiful, connected, and relaxed tango walk is a process.

But there are some individual exercises that will help you get better at it.

And what’s more, it’s fun!

Today we’d like to work with you on the forward walk.

Our goal is to help you make it powerful but also feel relaxed and natural.

We’ve created a 4-step process for you to practice exactly that!

Join us on this week’s video to learn:

  • How to transform your natural walk into a tango walk
  • How to find the balance between power and relaxation in your walking
  • How much dissociation you want to add when you are walking and why

A word for the ladies:

Yes, keep working on the backward walking! But do also practice the forward walk

It’s sexy, sensual, and oh-so-important for so many of our movements too!

We really hope it helps!

If you enjoyed this video and the info we share on our blog, we would be so grateful if you signed up to our channel. You will get weekly tips for a more powerful & elegant tango.

Thank you so much for watching!

Keep learning, and keep sharing your dancing, because the world of tango needs your embrace.

Much love,

Pablo & Anne

One thought on “Tango Walking: A 4-Step Process To Improve Your Tango Walk (Tango Technique)

    Hi Anne, hi Pablo,
    thanks for the Tips for walking which I appreciate a lot (and the sum of them corresponds to the recommendations of one of my teachers for a good Tango walk, but it’s still necessary to practice and improve… 🙂 )

    One question: the intention – pushing hard from the floor with the “rear” foot – is quite easy to manage for large steps. My above mentioned teacher recommended to push yourself with the rear foot up to the big toe, to get that intention. But for small steps, how do I put intention into them?

    Second question: you promised more tips about adapting the walk to melody and rhythm in the video, but I don’t find the link…

    Kind regards

    Bernard
