TangoCreativo: an exploration of how to feel and dance tango (Paperback)
Did you ever notice that good tango Maestros talk about the importance of connection, communication, and maybe self-expression and improvisation, but they do it in a non-practical, almost esoteric way? Why don't they approach such a deep, clearly important set of issues more concretely? In "TangoCreativo: an exploration of how to feel and dance tango", Juan Miguel Exp sito dives into the deepest mysteries of tango dancing and offers new insights, tools and ideas to finally shed light on these issues and on many others. TangoCreativo's central thesis is that learning traditional (or more modern) steps and figures not only doesn't help, but actively holds you back in your path towards a wholesome understanding of tango. Shifting the focus towards using physical sensations as a technical element, dissolving predefined dancing roles inside of the tango couple, and fostering improvisation and creativity from day one, the author offers a direct and complete alternative to the pedagogy of past and present tango Maestros.
