Tango and chaos

I started following what became the writings at Tango and Chaos when the website did not exist and the articles were posted instead on Tango-L. However, decided to revisit a few days ago and boy, what a pleasant surprise! Lots of new information on milongueros in Buenos Aires, and a new section on walking techniques. Since my recent private classes with Hsueh-tze and Javier Rodriguez/Andrea Misse all tended to focus on improving my walking, I was naturally quite fascinated. Well, suffice it to say, the conclusion is that, while the physical form may have deviated slightly, the essence is very much consistent with what I have been learning…

Here are some clips I really enjoyed. Curiously, apart from the age of the dancers, they really reminded me a little of the musicality and techniques exhibited by Javier Rodriguez. 🙂

  • Pocho – scroll down to see the demonstration at Sunderland.
  • Ricardo Vidort – scroll down to see the second clip.
