How do I ask someone to dance? (the cabeceo)

Argentine Tango Cabeceo

The Argentine style of asking for a dance is that the leaders ask. They ask in a particular way, often from across the room, by seeking eye contact with followers. If eye contact is held, the leader nods toward the dance floor (or raises one or both eyebrows). This is the cabeceo.

Argentine Tango partners

There is no requirement to change partners, but it is recommended that you dance with lots of different people, even if you have a main partner.
