Argentine Tango Technique 12: Backward ocho. With Marcelo Solis.

Argentine Tango dance technique 12: Continuing backward ocho

Continue pivoting the same direction of your established rotation and move your free of weight foot backward, aligned with your lower sagittal plane, your torso torquing according to counter body movement, orienting the center of your chest to the central axis of the couple (backward ocho).


Marcelo Solis

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.
