This is an instructional video on dancing the Tango, specifically the footwork. This elegant dance instructional goes over the Caricias embellishment. Caricias - 'caressing' your own leg with the free leg before stepping. Common during paradas or slow forward ochos.
Early tango was known as tango criollo, or simply tango. Today, there are many tango dance styles, including Argentine Tango, Uruguayan Tango, Ballroom tango (American and International styles), Finnish tango and vintage tangos. What many consider to be the authentic tango is that closest to that originally danced in Argentina and Uruguay, though other types of tango have developed into mature dances in their own right.
