Pivoting in Extreme Balance. Building up Your Tango Foundation... Pivot by Pivot

This makes pivoting, correctly and in total balance, not just extremely important, but vital. Antonella has many exercises dedicated to balance, so you’ll have a lot to gain by practicing them together with her. And don’t forget that this collection will prepare you for the more complex things ahead.
