Guardian of the Art
Apparently I have earned a reputation as a "Guardian of the Art". This is a wonderful compliment and it places a considerable responsibility on me to continue to protect the principal elements that characterize traditional, authentic Argentine Tango. Since I learned of this distinction I have taken on the responsibility to focus every class on improving the quality, clarity and precision of Connection, Dissociation and Improvisation - the essence of Argentine Tango.
Connection: Gentle touch with focused concentration, the 'connection' is best described as transcendental. Partners focus on one another to develop an invisible but palpable relationship, defined by the desire to remain in a measured close proximity without interrupting or imposing on one another.
Dissociation: With reference to self, dissociation is the separation and independent calculated movement of different parts of the body. With reference to partner, we develop an understanding of how the transfer of energy may be given and received consecutively, not concurrently, which is observed as 'energy in motion'.
Improvisation: When the partners connect and have developed sufficient dissociation they are able to move in a uniquely coordinated way that allows the dance to be created in real time. Unplanned, unrehearsed. The ultimate freedom of expression.
