Pro voleo

Argentine Tango Encyclopedia



A Voleo = projection + power.

The power comes from co-contraction. The mark creates co-contraction and the revel’s body mirrors it.

The power can be delivered in two ways

  • Pro voleo: He adds power in the same direction as the projection. The benefit of this kind of voleo is that the Mark controls the speed, dynamic and exit of the voleo.
  • Contra voleo: He cracks power through her body by moving in the opposite direction. This voleo has a snappy, rhythmic dynamic and the exit is automatic.

All voleos, whether voleo circular (front and back) or voleo linear (front, back, and side) can be marked as pro voleos or contra voleos.
