Tango Yorkshire

Post by gardenlaw » Sat Mar 27, 2010 1:03 pm

We have discovered Argentinian Tango in the last 12months. It is great for exercise both physical and mental. Our stamina has improved no end. Our brains tick over faster. We have met lots of new people both at the classes and milongas and on Facebook.

For anyone interested in tango, particularly Tange Nuevo, in Leeds, Harrogate, Wakefield or Boroughbridge then Adam is an excellent teacher. His website is http://www.adamparnell.co.uk/tango.htm and

A few months ago, I attended an Argentinian Tango night. Altho, I only knew the very basics, a friend help me thru the set and cortina. It is considered bad manners to say thank you after the 1st dance, one should continue with the same partner til the cortina. The more experienced dancers were more sensual in their dancing acheivable only, after hours of practice, discipline and true passion for the dance. Unfortunately, we only have Argentinian tango exhibits once a month, but they are quite fun and will fill certainly work you out physically while looking elegant, suave and sophisticated! Hopefully, if you try it, you can bear the experience with any partner at least thru the cortina(a set of 3 dances).

And I forgot about the shoes-I had heels on, but some of those seasoned vets had KILLER heels! Google that and look at the pricetag on some of them beauties. I guess you all can surmiss that this is coming from a female perspective. I would encourage any male to learn this dance-they may score a few dates out of it as there were more women than men at these duos. I was one of the lucky ones, that knew a male friend who had learned recently and made sure I twirled a few sets.

I am so pleased you enjoyed the milonga Jencast. We have usually been fortunate in the ratio of men to women. Women do dance with women and sometimes men with men, but men are not usually good followers. Here is a link to my wife Anne's recent lesson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcXP3p_grhQ a lesson

El tango argentino es un pensamiento triste que se puede bailar
