Ways to hug your man
Over at jantango (one of the many expats who has, for tango, settled in Buenos Aires for a number of years) she has documented a list of the embraces used by women she has observed in Buenos Aires:
- How do you hug your dance partner?
- How do you hug your partner? — part 2
- How do you hug your partner? — part 3
It’s good to see such a variety of embraces and to know that as a social dance, there does not need to be one single way to embrace your man.
As video embedding is disabled, please head over to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIkqCQo63Ig to see examples of many of these embraces in action as practiced by respectable milongueros/milongueras. It’s also an interesting educational exercise to consider why certain couples adopt specific embraces.
