The foot , leg and body action in T/Argentino, can, and does, vary greatly, dependant on what the sequences are. The weight distribution may vary considerably when dancing specific figures. Also, the body action and foot placement, will be different in a " driving " as opposed to a " walking " action .
The other major difference that this style of tango offers , is its requirement to occasionally use the arms quite specifically to lead and a " no " contact prom. is commonplace .
Unlike the B/Room style, there are many who oppose any format and it even " splits " farther in the style one chooses within the genre( Milonga, Salon, Nuevo etc . )
