Thought 134 – Getting Into The Encuentro

…of dance. Let’s be clear about something when we say “Musical Interpretation”, this isn’t about stepping on the beat and then stopping at the pauses and starting up again. This is, however, about creating a latticework of ideas that align with what’s happening musically. Most people don’t do that. They dance haphazardly to the music in a random fashion that has a few moments of “hey that worked”, but doesn’t. This is not that. Musical Interpretation means hearing X, doing Y, and then co-creating Z from within some kind of actual structure to enhance what’s happening musically. It means thinking…

This particular mantra has the benefits of reminders built-in, if you understand the underlying methodology behind it, it also encompasses the methodology of beat, and the super importance of musical

Alternation

Alternation is a Tango Topics teaching, musical, and vocabulary construct. Meaning that we teach it to show how we can structure our dance musically while employing vocabulary to express our dance musically. Alternation, in its simplest form, is starts out with 1 idea, and then alternates to another idea and then later on alternates back to the first idea.
