1. With good posture: The torso moves the body. The hands receive energy from the torso. Leaving all your leading energy in your arms will pull or push your follower. When you are in control of your posture, you will be able to read your partner with ease.
2. A dancer who can do close embrace first can move easily into open. You must be able to dance close if you are dancing Argentine tango as a social or exhibition dance.
3. Respecting the timing of each other is part of developing a sense of the readiness of your partner. Be present in the moment. Only then, can you feel the “right moment” to move. Impatience causes the lead to push and pull and the follower to anticipate.
