Dear Tango Dancer,

Forward Ochos are one of the pillars of tango dancing.

They’re probably one of the first movements you’ve learned in beginner lessons.

Yet they are one of those tango movements that are much more precise and challenging than they look.

Like the walk, they are fundamental movements that we need to keep polishing.

Often we see little common mistakes in the forward ochos impact our students’ whole dancing. And we know that correcting them can transform how grounded, powerful, and comfortable they feel when dancing…

So, if you sometimes feel like you are losing your balance a bit when dancing, and want to offer a comfortable embrace to your partner, this week’s video lesson will help you!

In it, we share 3 common forward ocho mistakes and how to correct them.

Click on the video to learn:

  • How ladies should position their heads so that your embrace is comfortable in the dance
  • An easy correction for leaders to communicate better with their partners
  • How followers can bring power in their forward ocho without losing the connection

We hope it helps.

Thank you so much for watching!

Keep learning, and keep sharing your dancing, because the world of tango needs your embrace.

Much love,

Pablo & Anne
