Argentine Tango dance technique 14: Boleo – Technical details and exercises

Since our legs move like pendulums, a back and forth movement of the leg without change of weight is possible. We call this “boleo”. This pendular movement of the free of weight leg is more often combined with the spiral movement of the leg described above in relation to pivoting.

  • Keeping your free of weight foot inside edge in contact with the floor, pivot back and forth, letting your free of weight leg to pendulum, carefully keeping the details described above about knees and legs.
  • Make forward and backward ocho moves and practice the back and forth pendulum at each instance of pivoting.
