Volcadas! This is the quint-essential cool move with regards to Argentine Tango. What you may or may not realize is that this move, is all about balance. Further still it is nothing more than a glorified Argentine Cross! Yup. A Cross. The simple fact is that what you’re leading and following is something you do constantly with the dance. The typical (as if there were such a thing) Argentine Volcada is nothing more than a tilted longitudinal axial line (about 20 degrees) argentine cross that just so happens to look insanely cool.
