Tango Topics | Exploring Your Dance

Bootcamp Videos

There are over 40 videos here to choose from. They were shot in 2010 for a Tango Bootcamp Seminar over a 6 hr period that turned into a 4 month project. 🙂 It’s only the barest hint of what would become 4 larger projects – Tango Truisms, and Tango Topics are the last of those projects. Get what you can from them, as the information is a bit dated,  and the language isn’t clean or specific (there’s a lot of ‘leader’ this and ‘leader’ that in it), but the structure of the stuff is still pretty good. The visuals are what you’re after. Most of this stuff does focus on what the Follower is doing, there’s a fair amount in there for the Lead as well. This video series has been updated twice (Common Core videos and now Tango Topics) — It is strongly suggested you upgrade to a SILVER or GOLD pass to see those videos. Please see each section for their appropriate cognates. Enjoy.
