Let's call it the Perez style Fifty years ago in Buenos Aires, dancers went to dance in their neighborhood club on the weekend. Transportation was limited. The tramvia (street car) didn't go out to the barrios. If a friend didn't have a car, one stayed in one's barrio. Dancing at the confiterias and cabarets downtown was easier; walk a block at you arrived at another one. They were all within the same area near Corrientes from Callao to Florida. Times have changed. Dancers go to different neighborhoods to dance, because they like a change of scenery and to see different dancers for a change. Whatever. A Clarin article written 11 years ago used three labels for tango styles--Almagro, Nuevo, and Villa Urquiza-- and they stuck. Americans love to name everything from dance steps to styles. The result is there are groups of tango dancers who don't associate with others because they dance a different style. There was a time when a dancer's personal style was admired. All the new young dancers are being trained rather than learning on their own, so they don't have personal styles. They are clones. They are told how to dance, what is right, what is good. I propose we change the name from "Villa Urquiza" style to the "Carlos Perez and Rosa Forte" style. They have trained the champions for the past six years. Talk about discrimination in competition. If couples aren't trained by them or Mario Morales, they aren't "selected" as winners by the judges. Each milonguero has a personal style. No self-respecting milonguero would copy another's steps. The milonga was a competitive arena for the best female dancers. Pupi was a character who hustled tourists for classes. He learned to dance to be noticed by girls, but I'm sorry to say that dancing with him was not pleasurable. He did figures and had no feeling for the music.
