How to Do the Cambio de Peso for the Argentine Tango

Learn how to do the cambio de peso from tango instructors Diego Blanco and Ana Padron in this Argentine tango dance video from Howcast.


Hi. We are going to teach you today how to change your weight from leg to leg, or we call this cambio de peso. So, it's very simple actually. We place our weight on one leg and then we switch our weight to the other leg, but we do this in an up motion. We don't rise, but we don't bend either when we change our weight. So there's no other curves [?]. We usually change our weight in music to find the beat. Once I find the beat I go ahead. There you have it you have a change of weight.
