Why is changing dynamic important when we dance tango?
Contrast, Expression & Exhilaration
I am in love with dancing tango slowly. It feels dreamy and romantic. But I would never want to dance slowly for the whole tango. It makes me feel like I’m sleepwalking! You may want to dance cheek to cheek with me, but I don’t think you want me dozing off on your shoulder!
Recently I’ve had a serious case of itchy feet. I imagine I’m not alone. Knowing I can’t travel has only made me want to travel more. I yearn to be in a far flung place, exploring the sites, the markets, the cuisine.
It may not be possible to travel freely at the moment, but online tango teaching has opened up the world to us. When it comes to learning, everyone has their unique path. And my online student in Taiwan has written this blog about her online learning experience with me.
A good dance floor is so important when we dance tango. A slippery floor can hinder our movements just as much as a floor which is difficult to slide on. It can be the make and break of a good tango night.
David and I had this in the forefont of our minds back in February when we were planning our new studio.
We wanted a floor like some of our favourite milongas and studio in London. But we had a problem.
