Tango is definitely my favorite dance
perhaps the only one with Pasodoble I really can dance “lol lol”.
While Pasodoble is french ballet inspired
combining the “impossible” – masculine power and grace
and not spanish bullfighter inspired as many believe
then Tango comes from South America specifically Argentina
from the area near the border with Uruguay.
There has come a european variant of Tango,
it is the one used in dance competitions
but it is not “the right one” – the argentinian has much more soul
where there are more improvised dance and tempo changes
to give priority on lead, variation and fluid dance
more social style and perhaps more erotic style.
Dancing is – perhaps even more than conversation
something which connects different people together
there is so much versatility in dance, both indoors and outdoors
there is no right and wrong.
This theme is really a travel theme with movement
with inspiration from Ailsa’s excellent blog
take a look the challenge here “Where’s my backpack”
this’s my version of the theme “Dance”.
