Tango Topics | Exploring Your Dance

Pressure. Typically this refers to physiological compression against the dancers back with their partner’s forearm (lead) and/or their hand (follow). Pressure is done by both roles, usually in an unconscious manner to ‘hold’ their partner in place or to keep the partnership together so that they can ‘dance’ with each other. From a Tango Topics perspective, this is not desirable. Employing Pressure creates more physiological work, than is required. To keep the partnership together, the dancer seeks to solve the problem with where and how you are stepping (usually closer to your partner, and with stability).  See > Compression.

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.
