The Book & DVD

Caminar Abrazados

At the very heart of Tango lies a simple truth: Tango is walking in an embrace. Every movement is made in the service of the embrace that gives Tango its unique feeling, energy and intimacy.

Drawing on 14 years‘ experience of international teaching, Melina Sedó and Detlef Engel explore and explain the groundwork which builds the walk, develops the embrace and facilitates musical interpretation. The social nature of the dance is emphasised in clear guidance on how to harmonise both with your partner and with other couples on the dance floor, and intelligent practice is encouraged by simple-to-follow exercises.

Whether you are a total beginner or an experienced dancer, Caminar Abrazados will accompany you on the fascinating road to making this beautiful dance your very own.

The world of the embrace awaits you!

  • Clear, incremental, detailed instruction on the Tango basics of movement, connection and embrace.
