pirouette

 

A pirouette is a full turn on one foot, which, in tango, requires a soltada. Both partners may pirouette.

The partners may maintain contact with the hands by making a change of embrace or may drop it completely.

Whether you have contact or not, when making a pirouette, use lateral shoulder flexion to draw your elbows toward your chest so you don’t smack your partner in the face.
