A recent video by our friends Melina and Detleff.
This?couple waas (and still is)?one of my first crushes in Tango.
The more I learn, the more I appreciate their?exact and beautiful walk.
?Recently, I've been receiving mail off-list about close embrace
and what defines it..particularly that when a couple is dancing closely
it doesn't necessarily mean that they are in close embrace. I was
suprisingly informed that this dance by Eduardo Masci was not a
close embrace dance....

Duh, my world is turned upside down...
OK, since my informant wouldn't give me detailes, I'm guessing that they
are not sharing the same axis...do these two dances? qualify in your mind? thks

Mario:
Did you notice that Detleff's left arm and Melina's right arm didn't move the entire tango. The arms are part of the frame. There was no "stirring the pot" as in another video you thought was fantastic.

I don't hold my left hand so high. That causes muscle fatigue for me and my partner.

I'd rather be dancing Argentine Tango
