Tango Topics | Exploring Your Dance

What is an Argentine Enganche ? The Enganche can be but is not limited to where the dancers’s free leg, can wrap around their partner’s leg in a myriad of different ways through either a Gancho, a Ganchito, a Rebound, un Libre Pierna (a free leg) Columpio (swing), or a version of a Sacada, or a Wrap in the English sense of the word. However the Argentine Wrap is a bit more specific in that it is very limited, this is where the Lead, or the Follower, mostly the Follower in this instance, can and will wrap their free leg around their partner usually from a side step. However a Wrap can be achieved from either back or forward steps as well however it is slightly more challenging to do so.
