4526  Sycopation problem ? (2)
Hey Jake, I don't really have a problem with syncopation. Its just more fun to do it than to write (or read) about. And none of us are going to transcribe, accurately, some little book of traspie variations...

4527  fun musical randomness (1)

4528  Double time (11)
Double time? I don't think its a case of playing a 4 minute song fast so that it takes 2 minutes. My understanding: The underlying beat doubles but the actual melody on top stays at the same pace. Imagine...

4529  Can we please just dance? (9)
Arrghhh all this arguing about syncopation, doubletime, triple time, makes me crazy. Vals is the most difficult of the rhythms to dance simply because it changes rhythms and is not consistent. Once...

4530  Hay Que Aprenden Bailar and Syncopation (1)

4531  Vals Revisited (1)

and the Music This relates to what Deby was saying about concentrating on the music while dancing. Last night in a class we were teaching on musicality, one of our followers, who has been dancing for...

4533  Embellishment Queens (7)
This happens because every so called Tango Diva that visits the U.S. and elsewhere teaches a workshop on adornments and embellishments for women. So women learn the brushes, the circles, the what...

Dear friends from tango list The taxi dancers activity in Buenos Aires , have changed from their initial activity of an escorting fee from outside the milonga dancing place to the inside of the dancing...

4535  A & B (1)
A. Adornos have nothing to do with recapturing your balance. They are a small figure that a woman can make. Sometimes the woman is to stand still while the man adorns his dance and before they...

4536  Dancer profile in Buenos Aires (13)

4540  Of Morris Dancing and Tango (1)
I think we have a thread going about how people from Argentina don't enjoy dancing tango, or even discussing the dance at all. But don't most people keep their local artistic passions to themselves?
