American Style Tango
Underarm Turn to Right from Side-by-Side
22. Underarm Turn to Right from Side-by-Side
Fact Sheet
Official Name:Underarm Turn to Right from Side-by-Side
Dance / Level:Full Bronze American Style Tango
Aliases:Outside Underarm Turn

From side-by-side position, the man can also lead the lady to dance an underarm turn to her right, to the counts of "Slow, Slow", ended in open counter promenade position. From here, the man and lady can dance a Tango Close, or resume side-by-side with steps 3-5 of Promenade Release, begun in open counter-promenade position.

When ended side-by-side, the figure is repeatable. The video demonstrates this by showing the figure danced twice in succession, first with a Promenade Release ending to resume side-by-side position, then with a Tango Close ending to finish in closed position.

Alignments given in the man's and lady's parts are for the purpose of teaching. Other beginning and ending alignments are possible, subject to the flow of traffic.
