This is the Tango Sueño Tip from May 20, 2013. Although many teachers talk about the axis, I don’t think most students clearly understand what it is or how it is relevant to the dance. I will expand on the topic in the future.
Tango Tip of the week: Axis: “A straight line about which a body or a geometric figure rotates or may be supposed to rotate – Merriam-Webster”. Think about your axis! Even if you dance close embrace, you need to be on your own axis. Give your partner his or her freedom while enjoying the dance together!
