American Style Tango
Promenade With Right Turn
6. Promenade With Right Turn
Fact Sheet
Official Name:Promenade With Right Turn
Dance / Level:Beginning Bronze American Style Tango
Aliases:Promenade Turn, Natural Promenade Turn

The promenade position is defined as a "V"-shaped dance position whereby the man and lady travel in the same direction, toward the open end of the "V".

The transition from promenade to closed position can be accomplished in one of three ways: (1) Lady can turn to man, (2) man can turn to lady, or (3) man and lady can split the difference and turn to each other.

In Promenade with Left Swivel, the lady swivels on her left foot to close to the man. The Promenade with Right Turn is the converse, whereby the man turns to the right to close to the lady. However, the man's turn is not an in-place swivel on the end of the second step; It's a slightly more gradual turn between the second and third step.

When the man turns around the lady, his first step following the turn is back on the left foot, which begins a Natural Tango Close. When the promenade moves along line of dance, the Natural Tango Close is turned 3/8 to right to end with man facing diagonal center. In a corner, less turn can be made, such as 1/4 to right to end facing new line of dance, or 1/8 to right to end facing diagonal center thereof.
