Today’s video lesson will be a gentle introduction to Tango with an American Smooth twist.
American Smooth refers to the American style of dancing the Ballroom dances. This tends to favour more of an exhibition style of dance. Partners often release out of hold and can often let go entirely.
The Dance – Tango American Smooth
Many people view the Tango as an agressive, staccato dance, featuring sharp head turns and quick changes of direction.
The American Smooth Tango takes elements of the Tango and adds in a more free-flowing feel.
Our intention is to ease you in with two simple American Smooth Tango steps: the eight count basic and the basic corte. Upon mastering this we will then introduce you to the more advanced cobra fans (which will take a bit more practice)!
You can also introduce the cobra fans into your regular Tango, assuming you have the space and time around you. The leader would just need to be preparing to step back with their left foot to initiate the movement.
