Argentine Tango dance technique 8: Pivot
- Maintain the “inside edge position” when you pivot.
- Step forward after pivoting directing your free of weight foot aligned with your lower sagittal plane.
- This forward step will be directed in a circular trajectory around your partner. Orient the center of your torso towards the central axis of the couple.

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.
