We’re repeatedly told, by tango teachers, blog writers, other experienced dancers, etc, that practice is crucial. With tango, as well as other physical activities, there’s no secret formula to developing great technique when learning more complicated figures.
Practice is key.
But by pinpointing certain aspects of the figure, we can make learning more efficient and get the most out of practice sessions. Many of us choose to focus on the actual execution of the step itself by focusing on the most visually appealing components.
Although that’s effective to a degree, what comes right before that part is even more important. Practice the step, but pay special attention to practicing the setup.
