Tango Topics | Exploring Your Dance

Typically a Follower activity, but a Lead can do them as well, is a series of movements (too vast for this small definition of the word) that is done with the feet in concert with the music. In modern Tango the activity of Adornments are usually self led/engaged by the Follower, however they can also be initiated by the Lead as well. An Adornment should not be confused with an Embellishment, and yet they’re talking about the same things. One of them happens in time to the music (Adornment), and one of them happens outside of the music or without relation to the music (Embellishment). One happens very frequently (Adornment), and the other (Embellishment) happens very infrequently.

on Dec 31, 2020 at 12:01 Tango Topics will cease operation

The site will go dark, and ALL of its content will disappear in short order right after that.

What will happen to all of the content I’ve built over the last 5 years ?
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.
