Tango tip

There are three head positions for the lady:

  1. your left cheek bone to his right cheek bone (for salon style)
  2. your right side of face to his right side of face (for milonguero style)
  3. your nose and forehead to the right side of his face (alternate possibilty for milonguero style)

Try these positions out with a partner and notice that you can stand directly in front of your partner with your head in position #2. However, in position #1, you may be in a V position with your body in relation to his; more appropriate in salon style, but not in milonguero style.
