How to Do Follower Embellishments during the Argentine Tango

Learn how to make follower embellishments from tango instructors Diego Blanco and Ana Padron in this Argentine tango dance video from Howcast.


So, pararas, any parara that the leader might do, you have a little time to embellish with only the free leg, the one that has no weight. From here, you can caress your partner's leg, come across, caress your leg, feet together and just wait for his lead. Leaders, make sure you give time for this. Who doesn't want to be caressed. Now, we're going to try forward ochos. Forward ochos, the transitions are in the middle, are in the waiting time. So, as my partner brings me around I have time to do a double cross until I feel the next push. And then you're ready to go.
