NEW SEMINAR (Class format: Zoom simultaneous live Chinese translation of the course in a second link)
Tango Stories: evolution of the dance
Most of the time, teachers and students mainly focus on the dancing aspect of tango culture. Tango, however, is much more than movements, and, in order to understand it on a deeper level, we need to carefully examine the roots and the evolution of this dance.
When I started dancing, I came across so many affirmations, but so very few real explanations. My frustration about not getting full answers has motivated me to seek them for myself. I always find myself interested in understanding the reasons behind things, their inner logic and meaning. This has formed my point of view, my dance and teaching.
Are we looking forward to having tango in the future? If so, then it is fundamental to understand the when, who and how of the tango facts: the events, the situations, the social and personal stories that have brought us where we are now.
Who were those amazing people, and couples of the past?
Which movements appeared first?
How was "cabeceo" born? And what about the rest of the milonga codes? Have they always been the same?
Which one was born first? The music or the dance?
What does it mean to say: "this has tango" or "that does not have tango"?
What really is traditional tango? And what is the innovation?
Understanding the dance in all its layers and answering those and many more questions, should allow us to reflect on and visualize the tango of the future.
