First, thanks to TangoPilgrim for finding this one. There are a few things I like about this performance/demo. Like Pilgrim, I like the vals - Se Fue by Lucio Demare. I like that it is being danced in Sunderland - there's something cool/funky about dancing tango in a basketball gymnasium. I like that there are no baggy pants being worn in the video. I like (to think) that there are very likely no baggy pants in the entire building. I like that the style is salon/close embrace mas o menos. I like the dance, just dial down the jazz, if you ask me.
What I don't like is that he is "out embellishing" his follower. I read this tonight - something Daniel Trenner said - "The man's job is to let the woman dance."
Let's not forget this fellers. It's not about us or our steps or our figures or our patterns or our moves or even our lead.
It's about the woman - dancing her and letting her dance.
She's there, in your arms, to dance and have fun and feel beautiful.
Make it so.
BE the tango you wish to see in the world.
There is a beautiful woman in that video...you may have missed her...
