DJs on Youtube: Passiontango1

On this Youtube account you find a large amount different tandas you can  combine to a whole dance evening!


and you will land on site as below. 






















Or you prefere to follow an orchestra? On the page below you can find long playlists organized by orchestras and for example you will find a lot of play-ready tandas for d'Arienzo. There is clear risk that your feet are off beforen the playlist has finnished!


        


It will be nice with 43 vals tandas too or what would you prefere? I appreciate the names of the song in the winndow.

A capricious joy


The joy of dancing is a capricious companion nowadays!

Earlier it was enough to enter to a tango venue and I was lifted from my daily hassles. I got a clear feeling of dancing, a connection to the music and to my partner for the tanda. It is not so anymore.

During many years I never checked who of my friends was going out to a specific place. I just went there and find my partners there or made new aquintances. Today I don't go if my favorit partners decide to stay at home.

Venues which have put me in the mood for years don't have that power anymore. I do not know why the change is taking place now but I am curious where this new track is going to take me!

One old place is still on top: Pele!

For some reason it has always had a vivid attraction to the crowds here. During long times the only place where we could get some food, drinks and a place to sit down for a talk. It is a family own place and one of the sons is running it now. But his mother is still participating - sitting on the wheelchair and though she doesn't recognize us anymore we chat with her for a while between dances.

Frostbite 2015: Friday night dancing



There was a theme for this night telling us to use white clothes and a mask!

I didn't have noticed this and one of the couples was with me - the black swans!  :)





Friday nights include the most troubled moments during an event. People have not yet found their way to be together. Lots of energy is used to find friends and interesting new dance partners. It can be chaotic on the floor and you most probably have a feeling of to be unconnected to your partner and to the music. But dont worry!   it gets better tomorrow!

El Brujo: even the ghosts start dancing




Yesterday's informal tango evening started very formally but ended in a wild nuevo kind of race! I was leaving but nearly turning back, dancing with my coat on, when a new tanda was to begin . . . but I hardened my heart.

Even a ghost got down to the pista!

A bloody boleo!

Things happen on pista when too high and careless boleos are used on too crowded milonga!
