5a. Circles

Embellishments are movements that beautify the look and feel of the tango without interfering with the movements or figures that are led. Embellishments are more often done by the follower than the leader, but a leader can do them anytime that they would not interfere with his ability to lead.

Whenever the leader pauses on the dance floor, the follower (and the leader, although this is not shown above) can easily make circles on the floor with the feet. Circles can be large or small and they can be in either direction. Practice making them perfectly round and keeping the movement of your leg smooth and even as you do them.
