If the core of tango is the walk, and the cool toy of any turn is disassociation, then applied disassociation must be the creme de la creme. And it is. Think of Applied Disassociation as that really cool, sexy, turn you’ve always wanted, now up the ante a bit with slow, controlled rotation, incremental rotation, hair pin and precision execution with a snap turn that will make your head spin…that is Applied Disassociation!
Why do you want it ? The simplest answer is that it’s the difference between moving as a block of wood, and the sveltness sexiness of power, control, and execution all rolled into one. Quite possibly the sexiest thing to happen to tango in nearly 40 years.
What can you do with it ? Back Sacadas, Ochos, Molinetes, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. So much more.
I’m not going to lie to you, this is not for the faint of heart, this is not something you learn in 5 minutes, but takes a good long while to get. This video shows you the foundation of what happens when release, and more importantly how you release the energy built up by Disassociation.
