The subject of alterations by its nature is as infinite as Tango. To alter means to modify, to change or cause to change in character or composition, typically in a comparatively small but significant way.
‘Salida para atras’ can be considered alteration of basic to the cross in cross system.
To understand alteration you need to have solid understanding of the original pattern. It’s easy to modify something if we know and understand the original source. Can you still dance it as a memorized pattern? Of course. But hey – you are beyond that!
Alteration give you the ability to smoothly transition between patterns and create your own ones while smoothly floating around the floor. If you have problem improvising Alteration will help you understand how to start so you are free from eternal prison of Tango steps.
