Issues in Arms Control (for Tango Dancing)

Dear dancers,

I am always fascinated to listen to people talk about tango. Especially beginning dancers... they usually
have fresh observations about things that I have long since taken for granted. 

For example - just last week one of the guys said:

   "Tango is hard to learn after being a salsa dancer, because in tango you use the spine to lead, not the arms."

Very interesting. And true. Not literally true, but I know what he means. And it's an important insight.

One hears similar ideas from various corners - men "lead with the chest" (not the arms). The tango "frame" is
the body, not the arms. Etc. I know what they are trying to say. It's true. 

Not literally true, though.

Without the arms you wouldn't have what we normally think of as tango. The connection of the tango couple is
based on holding. And the main thing that makes tango look the way it does is that the couple is attached
through four arms and does not separate. This arm connection results in the distinctive use of the torso
and legs that makes tango a visual spectacle of the legs and feet.

TONIGHT'S WORKSHOP

I would say that it's kind of normal for dance learners to fixate on steps, and what the feet are doing. But at
the heart of becoming a good dancer is knowing how to use the arms.

Tonight's Tango Topics Workshop is called "Embraceable You". 

It will be a clinic on how arms work on tango dancing, options, best practices, theories, myths and dogma.

We'll discuss a few concepts, try a few exercises, and then let you explore different arm techniques using
simple movements.

Embraceable You
Thursday 9 June
9 pm 
Channing-Murray Foundation
1209 W Oregon

$10 drop-in (if you aren't already signed up for the series)

FW:Milongueando en Buenos Aires: August 8-14, 2011

Date: Thu, 2 Jun 2011
From: Karen Simon <ksimon@...>
Subject: [Tango-A]  SA: Milongueando en Buenos Aires: August 8-14,
    2011

Dear Milongueros,

There are only two months left to go until Milongueando 2011, the most important event of tango milonguero
in Buenos Aires.  And this year, we're celebrating our 5th anniversary! Our 2011 teachers include
Susana Miller, Maria Plazaola, Alicia Pons, Ana Maria Shapira, El Nene Masci, Osvaldo y Coca, Julio
Dupl?a, just to name a few.

Preparations are heating up. We've reserved the mansion Dandi once again for our classes. For those of you
who have already participated in the festival, you will agree that this historic hotel, built in 1903, is
one of the most beautiful examples of art nouveau to be found in Buenos Aires. On our website,
www.milongueandoenba.com, you will find information about reserving your room in this hotel, as well as
other suggestions for lodging.

Our website also includes the complete festival program, a registration page, and a host of photos and
videos from last year and previous years.

If you've forgotten, participants of this Encuentro can take up to 12 classes of all levels that include
tango, waltz, folklore, a 4-class milonga workshop with live percussion and a special tribute to the
greatly loved and admired Tete, who passed away last year. As well, there are 5 guided practices, an
intimate dinner with participants and maestros and two milongas with live orchestras and DJs Lucia
Plazaola and Lampis Zalavras.

Planning on coming as a group? There's a discount offer for groups of 4 or more, if you sign up with the
"ambassador" of your city. Once again, check our website, www.milongueandoenba.com, for a list of
ambassadors. If you have any questions about registration, please email us at milongueandoenba <at> gmail.com.

Please don't forget: Places are limited so don't wait until the last minute!! As one of our 2009
participants said, "Being in the presence of these true masters of tango is an incredible experience - the
living history of tango...and dancing with them: heaven on earth!" 

Hasta agosto! 
Un abrazo milonguero,
The Milongueando team
