We walk together in systems, on tracks, and we can change feet in different combinations.
Side steps and Ochos
We step lateral to the partner with open or crossed steps, also called ochos, which are lateral step beginning with a pivot of 90-270 degrees.
Molinete lineal is tango's custom for walking sidewards.
In sacada the partners step perpendicular to one another, with one partner displacing the other.

There are three Giros: double-giro and two single-giros, the Mark’s single-giro and the Revel’s single-giro (also known as Calesita).
The free leg crosses in front or behind the base leg.
A stop, during any point of a step or pivot.
A barrida moves the Revel's free leg by direct contact with the Mark's free leg.
These are the off-balance elements. In Volcada the partners lean on one another. In Colgada the partners hang.
Adornos are unmarked embellishments. Both partners can do almost anything they want, as long as they remain reliable and predictable.
A soltada goes out of the standard embrace.
A rebote is an elastic step which returns to the origin. Alteración is a rebote which pivots and releases at a different point than the origin.
Voleo Circular maximize front and back projections during a pivot. Voleo Linear maximize front, back, and side projections.
Ganchos hook a voleo through the partner's leg or around the body.
Contra block to Revel's Pivot. Patada is a kick, usually between the partner's legs, marked with a contra block.
A salta is a situation in which the Revel's weight is off of both of her feet. This could be a jump, lift, drag, or sostenida.

Every time I watch your videosyour clarity and accuracy amazes me anew.
It is rewarding to see my partner's transformation...He is more confident, and a lot more playful and creative.
I've been with 7 other Tango teachers in Melbourne, Sydney and New York.Your videos give more relevant practical info in 60 seconds than most students get in 10 years, if ever...
I really need to compliment you on your teaching methods, becauseI grow as a tango dancer very quickly with the MasterCourse, so I stopped doing regular group classes.
