Argentine Tango dance technique 5: Walk
- Walk naturally, swinging your free of weight leg forward, extending it a little, letting your axis move in the same direction and maintaining it vertically thought the transition, pushing gently from your back standing leg, and transferring your weight to the front leg at the end of this process, keep your foot always in touch with the floor, softly, without dragging it.
- Reverse the process to walk backwards. Pay attention to point backwards with the back of your foot when extending your free of weight leg backwards, keep your foot always in touch with the floor, softly, without dragging it.
- Maintain all details regarding your posture as described before.

I was born in Argentina. Through my family and the community that saw my upbringing, I have been intimately involved with the culture of Tango all my life, and have been an Argentine Tango dance performer, choreographer and instructor for over 30 years. I profoundly love Tango dancing, music, and culture, particularly that of the Golden Era. I am a milonguero.
