Want to Dance Stage Tango?





 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
My faithful readers know how I feel about
students learning stage tango moves and
then coming to Buenos Aires
expecting to dance them in the milongas.

But of course there are dancers who want
to learn to dance stage tango from the
getgo; the same as ballet dancers
learning how to dance in ballets.
They have no interest at all in
tango social dancing
--another dance form altogether.

I recently received an announcement for
a stage tango course (which started
last week in New York).

STAGE TANGO
FOR TRAINED, EXPERIENCED 
OR PROFESSIONAL DANCERS ONLY
ANY KIND OF DANCE BACKGROUND
IS WELCOME
NO TANGO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY
A partner is required.

And the course was full before it even started.

I am so curious as to who the participants are,
seeing as in New York there aren't
many tango stage shows to audition for.
Maybe a lot of the students are
Dancing With
the Stars wannabes?
Or perhaps they are ballet dancers who hope
to dance in a Julio Bocca tango ballet?




Don't get me wrong: I believe in any and all forms
of dance studies. The more we have control over our
bodies, the more we can express with them.
I just think nothing can beat ballet training
for professional stage dancers. With ballet
technique nailed, the steps of
stage tango are a piece of cake.


















Maybe this Tango-Pointe shoe 
should be required
footwear?
