Tarea #5 – JCCC Spring 17

Welcome to your 5th & final tarea from Tango Matiz. This week we will discuss a very interesting topic—the topic of Tango Nuevo. This term has been a matter of great controversy of the last 20-25 years, as many dancers like to describe their dancing as a “style”, and therefor also want to assign the notion of style to anything they like or dislike.

Figures of Tango

Every few months I find myself coming back to the same question: what should a tango dancer know at every level of their dance? Or said another way, what should a beginner, intermediate, advanced, and professional dancer know and be comfortable with in their dance? Now, I know that at every level the goal of any social dancer should be to strive for musicality & comfort within the embrace, but that being said, we can still organize figures into appropriate figure categories.

There comes a time in every dancer’s experience, when there are more thoughts in your head, than an ability to keep them contained. For some these thoughts spill out into social media, or, god-forbid, teaching at a milonga.
