Put your weight onto the right foot and lean back then take a step back with your left foot in the contra body position. As you are stepping back with the left foot, your body turns to the right, helping you partner "swivel." Step forward, making your partner face you. Then repeat the above moves (forward, back, side, lady face you) Step forward, then back, then turn her, and do the tango close. In terms of speed, the steps should be quick, quick, slow, slow, quick, quick, slow, slow, quick quick, slow, slow, and a tango close.

Then you step onto the left foot - to the side and swivel to face him. You are essential stepping to swivel - something that should be practiced on your own so that you are moving "on your own axis." In terms of speed its quick, quick, swivel, swivel, quick, quick, swivel, swivel, quick, quick, swivel, swivel, and tango pull.
