    I'm curious to get people's views on the differences between the point in a curved feather where tha man crosses in front of the lady and places his right foot oustide partner, and the point where he does something vaguely similar in the chase in tango.

    I feel like the foxtrot figure involves placing just the foot just barely outside partner - you really keep most of your body closed to the partner. But I've usually been taught the tango figure with a step very far across the partner, such that it's your upper thighs in contact and the chests may be really facing past each other rather than towards each other.

    The difference is that there's no rise/fall in tango as there is in foxtrot.

    As a follower, I've been tought both figures pretty much the same way... As Joe said, with no rise in tango..
