Tango Topics | Exploring Your Dance

Today’s #Tango Thought 008: There’s nothing nicer than a warm, cuddly embrace. Unfortunately a good portion of the time that embrace is marred by too much compression (in 1 of 5 or all 5 possible problem areas), engaging unneeded resistance, too much physiological pressure in any one of the 5 areas. The embrace is there as a construct, a frame if you will, to give the dance it’s iconic look. However it’s not there to be used to push, or pull or to hang on your partners. The independent, and skilled dancer does not need or rely on the embrace for stability or to ‘communicate’ in overt ways, but rather resides in smaller and smaller physiological cues from their partner, which is far more desirable. It’s also the reason that some people will not dance with you because you do not employ this way of dancing. So the cuddly embrace can happen, but only if both partners do not need to rely on each other at all for stability in any way, shape, or form. #SocialTango #TangoDancing #TangoTeaching #TangoInstruction #SocialDancing #SocialDance #ArgentineTango #TangoTopics

It will get stored on a hard drive and it will not see the light of day after that.

What about all the content aside from the videos ? I will retain a working copy of the site, but the site will get deleted.
