In this short tutorial, we take a sequence of basic Tango figures and modify them slightly to provide ideas that can make your dancing more creative.

The grouping begins with a modified Twist Turn (bronze figure), followed by a similarly modified Chase (gold figure). We end the Chase with a Chasse that has modified timing so that it can adapt easily to the Fallaway Whisk. This is followed by a Right Lunge and Rock on Left Foot, after which we move on to a series of traditional figures: Walks, Progressive Side Step Reverse Turn, Open Reverse Turn, Outside Swivel and Brush Tap.
