Last week at one of the practicas I went to that had for once more or less equal numbers of men/women. One lady who is a reasonable beginner asked me this question in an exasperated voice: "What do...

sugestions Folks, Good morning and thank you for both supporting and not so supporting personal email messages. I simply pointed out the challenges of communicating in a text-based lean medium and...

I am posting this on behalf of a Chicago friend who is seeking lodging in Buenos Aires, for just herself. She will arrive on 28 February and will depart on 17 March. She needs an extremely quiet...

6255  Leading with the Chest vs Arms (1)
I've read the heated discussions about leading with the chest vs arms. In the movie "Cool Hand Luke" which takes place at a prison in the South, Luke upsets the prison warden who strikes him to the...

6256  R-E-S-P-E-C-T (and definition of "Social (1)
Tango") Hi David, Of course, both as a list reader and certainly as a moderator, I would endorse any attempt to make the list more civil. However, while I would always try in my own posts to avoid having...

6257  Leading with the heart and the core (2)
I said to "lead with the heart and the core" in my last post with considerable deliberation, because that is what I do, or try to do, always. Yes, you are connected through the hands and arms, but...

6258  Definition of "Social Tango" (1)
Shahrukh Merchant wrote: Agreed entirely. I guess that I have become hypersensitive due to the occasional use of the expression "traditional" as lead in to an attack on those who dance "show tango"...

6259  Clarification of terms, Part 2 (2)
Dear list, Here's another terms-clarification attempt, submitted for your approval ;): Clarification: LEAD WITH xxx (arms/frame/chest/other part of leader's anatomy) In our experience, by choosing to...

6260  lead with arms (1)
Igor, It wasn't Back Ochos in general but a particular Back Ocho. Susana Mller was assisted in the class by a milonguero who has danced for more than 70 years and is well known for this Back Ocho....

6261  leading with the arms (1)
I am prefacing this submission with a disclaimer- that I am no expert, no list of credentials, I am only weighing in based on my own personal experience of dancing, so take my opinion for what you will.

6262  help grouping (3)
Hi Folks, I am not familiar at all with different orchestras. I need some help with existing schema (models) that would facilitate my understanding of rhythm, mood, style, etc... Even the categories...

6263  Ragtime Tango clip (3)
A friend sent me this. The opening suggests that it is the ragtime version of Argentine Tango. The clip was made for archival purposes and appears to have been reconstructed from an early dance...

6264  Using Arms Eloquently (1)
Here's a video of David Trenner dancing Milonguero in Portland. Note: his use of arms that goes with an extremely suave torso and light stepping. This is as good as it gets.. imo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNRRiUiQg9Y&feature=channel_page

6265  Shocked (55)
I hope is OK for me to let my sister Theresia post some thoughts on here? Klaus Klaus showed me posts on here and in emails, and I was surprised, shocked a little even, to see how unrespectful people...

6266  dark milongas (4)
I agree re: many milongas in US being too dark. You can't do cabeceo and you can't see the details of the dance. The tradition of tango carries with it the notion that you learn by watching the dancers...

6267  The Lead Pyramid (11)
A lot of discussions in forums such as this one involve taking sensible statements to ridiculous extremes. For instance, "Don't lead with hands too much" becomes "Don't lead with hands AT ALL." ...

6268  A Fake Amague !! (1)
My understanding of amague (fake): It is when the man takes a step to one side of the woman, but quickly retracts to go to the other side (or elswhere). So this is a fake step. Not a rock step etc.,...
