Street dance busking for tourist money and you want me to take you seriously!!!!
Maybe I was nearer in my thoughts of your street dancing objective...
Leaving aside any prejudices you might have against Jantango's views,
don't you think this dancing is rather grotesque? Contorted bodies,
I wouldn't worry about it, milongueros of RV's era did with their feet
what their partnership of the movement of the bodies together required.
Steve, I have never seen much use of such a striking foot drive
in BsAs. In later video of RV it certainly is not as powerful but
then he was...
See this link to Tango Commuter's post on his blog
followed by comments by one of Ricardo Vidort's
dance teaching organisers and dance partner in UK...
Oh it does happen (in the UK), sometimes after discreet warnings
although not always as discreet as they should be.
But probably not on Christmas Eve when the whole city
shuts down. It was very strange to be high up overlooking
a very quiet Nueve de Julio and then...

That's equally true in Buenos Aires as it is Worldwide.
What the dance needs (as...
Then someone should tell the milonga organisers of Buenos Aires
that this so-called outlawing of the backstep needs to be enforced.
Surrender!!! NO!! Nor submission.
It's physical and mental commitment, one to another,
whole hearted and without qualification.
The two partners...
It can be seen and it certainly can be felt. There are tourists I don't dance
with because they don't embrace fully and even some recently taught...
You are right Zoopsia, her hand appears to be pressed onto his wrist
and Cacho's hand has nothing to grip - I had to look really hard for this.

I actually think Homer and Christina are rather good dancers...
In this case I find myself in (non-violent) agreement with UKDancer.
I for one would like to be educated if you think you know the answers
Indeed you could be right!
My story wasn't gossip but personal experience.
I could say more but will now let this off-topic subject rest.
