pointed toes

Argentine Tango Encyclopedia

The free leg’s toes should always be pointed as they extend into projection or when they are in the air.

Pointing the toes means extending the ankle joint fully and contracting the muscles of the arch of the foot.

Avoid contracting the muscles of the arch of the foot in a way that twists the foot into either “sickle” or “winged” position.  The second toe should be on the same vector as the shin bone.
