In this section of Tango Terms we explore the Abrazo (the embrace - both open and close) and the Caminada (walk).
First the terms redefined:
Abrazo embrace [ah-brah’-tho]
The tango embrace, in which the lead's right arm is around the follower's back; and the lead's left hand is clasping the follower's right hand.
1. Close Embrace: upper bodies touching or in very close proximity.
2. Open Embrace: no body contact.
Caminada walk [cah-me-nah’-dah]
Series of steps that walk forward.

A Very Tango Store beautiful tango quotation
Yes, there is a secret to being a brilliant lead. To be the best lead, do not love your follower. Instead, listen to the tango music and love it! To make tango beautiful we must transfer! We must transfer our love of the music to the follower, and she has no choice but to be enchanted!
