Argentine Tango School

Argentine Tango follower’s technique 8: Knees

  • About knees: the knee of your free of weight leg passes behind the standing leg, fitting its convex shape into the concave space behind the knee of your standing leg, moving all around the standing leg until getting its concave back in front of it’s convex shape, making your feet end crossed.
  • Your standing leg needs to be in a relaxed ready position, neither bent nor blocked, and your free of weight leg extended with a tension comparable to the tension of a well tuned musical instrument string.
  • Exercise: Move your free of weight leg around your standing leg back and forth.
