In the current crisis, our everyday routines have been turned on their heads.

But you can keep up your tango skills – with or without a partner – in the smallest of spaces and incorporate it in your daily tasks. As you wait for the kettle to boil, microwave to ping or toast to pop.

David and I have had fun with a tiny video project showing us practicing and improvising in our kitchen.

Restricted space? That’s no issue. Meandering cats who don’t understand the rules of tango floor craft … well, that’s more of a problem …

If you have a galley kitchen like us it is perfect for practicing follower’s decorations for the calesita (carousel). Lightly hold on to either counter and turn clockwise and anti-clockwise, changing from left to right leg and playing around.

Putting on a favourite tango is always great for inspiration.

It can be really absorbing as you can see by the fact I forgot to tell my cat off for walking on our kitchen counter!

And here I am improvising to one of my favourite tangos while “making a cup of coffee”.

More videos coming soon with ideas for solo practice in lockdown!
