Tango Passion in Asia: Tanguera (探戈舞人)

Pilar Alvares and Claudio Hoffman in Asia!  YouTube Erurope algorithms are not giving me this kind of shows usually. Just when I remember to search some Asian links they start to pop up!  Lovely!

They were visiting our community about 10 years ago and I still remember some of their figures for that weekend.

Rasche Notation - Tango shorthand

Specielt during the first year my need to write down figures was enormous! We did not have Youtube or books or anything to help remember the moves. The only aid in reach was to write down the steps!

During that time I developed some kind of way to note the steps - notes which I cannot read today, words are ok but the moves cannot be created based on them.

When I heard about Rasche Notation I bought the books and learned the basics. I still use some signs! Today it is not for the memory but an aid to pay attention to details on a interesting Youtube sequence. I look more careful when I write down the moves!

Here is a link for you to check if it would be interesting for you too! Sacada is % and it is used a lot by me!

Here a link to the site! Click this line!

Saturday night calmness

This is the look of the milonga with all codes active!

The host will suggest you a place in leader, follower or couple area and then she will acompany you to the seat!  Some like it, some don't! :)

Cabeceo only invitations before the dancing!

This was in the end of the evening when I was leaving but some wanted to take the last tanda too!

Argentine - Russia - Hong Kong connection



On this first video Maria and Alexandr Frolov are dancing Invierno played by
“Solo Tango Orquesta Tipica”. So we have the Argentine - Russia connection!





When we get more south we meet the same couple in Hong Kong!



I like the small musical jerk they use every now and then. You find an example on this picture, Check the time there and check it on the video! then you can enjoy even the musical accent to this!
