Tango walk (Caminada)

The foundation of the Argentine tango is ... just walking. Compared to ordinary walking the Caminada distinguishes itself on three aspects: more upright, in a narrower track and a bit like a prowling cat. With enough space to dance the Caminada will allow you to take a corner.
