The Family of Tango Dances

There are actually three tango dances—each with its own music—in Argentine social dance. During the course of an evening of dancing all three will be played and danced.

The first is simply tango. This is thedance most people would recognize as tango and the dance most beginners learn first. Its music is typically based on a slow, steady four-count beat.

The second dance is called milonga. Milonga is a faster-paced dance based on simplified tango steps. It has much the same rhythm and feeling as a polka.

Milonga music is historically older than tango music, but the dance itself is actually newer. Milonga is a dance simply for fun.

The third is tango waltz, called vals or vals cruzado. Tango waltz music is based on the classic 1-2-3 of waltz, but in this type of tango, dancers typically dance on the ones. Continue reading “Why Tango? Because It Offers More Than Any Other Dance!”

Attending Tango Class

When you’re a beginning tango student, attending a class is the best way to get your bearings in the dance.

Sign up and attend regularly. Every good dancer I know is good because they signed up for the first series of classes and attended all of them. Learning to dance tango is a wonderful commitment you make for yourself and consistency is as important to achieving this goal as it is for all others in your life. Signing up and coming to one class a month here and there will just be frustrating for you.

A good tango class should introduce you to the following elements of tango: walking, turning, stopping, navigation, musicality and some embellishments. Continue reading “Tango Mileage What Is It? And Why Do You Need It!”

Mouthwash May Cause Diabetes & Obesity

I know it sounds crazy!!!

It Kills Good Bacteria!

In a 2016 study, researchers found evidence that the popular mouthwash Listerine can control gonorrhea bacteria in people’s mouth and throat.

While the antibacterial fluid is used to kill harmful oral bacteria, researchers of the new study said that it could also be indiscriminately killing the beneficial strains of microbes that provide protection against obesity and diabetes, as well as those that help the body produce nitric oxide.

Nitric oxide helps regulate the insulin levels of the body. It plays an important role in regulating metabolism, balancing energy, and keeping the body’s sugar levels in check.

Frequency Of Use

  • Mouth washes act on all bacteria in the mouth, the good and the bad. By removing the good bacteria it permits the harmful bacteria to grow and increase.

Latest research is recommending that you should limit your use of mouthwash to just once a day to avoid eliminating the helpful bacteria in the mouth.

Resurgence Of Tango All Over The World

Resurgence Of Tango All Over The World

Why Tango?

  • In today’s world of computers and smart phones we are losing the feelings that only touching another human being can give us.
  • In the world of salsa or swing dancing there is no “Intimate Embrace” like there is in Tango.

We all need to feel part of something that is outside of ourselves. Continue reading “Resurgence Of Tango All Over The World”

3 Quick & Easy Tango Styles

3 Quick & Easy Tango Styles

El Abrazo

The Tango’s frame, called an abrazo or “embrace,” is not rigid, but flexibly adjusts to different steps, and may vary being quite close, to offset in a “V” frame, to open. The flexibility is as important as is all movement in dance.

In tango, the steps are typically more gliding but can vary widely in timing, speed, and character, and follow no single specific rhythm. Because the dance is led and followed at the level of individual steps, these variations can occur from one step to the next. This allows the dancers to vary the dance from moment to moment to match the music (which often has both legato and/or staccato elements) and their mood. Continue reading “3 Quick & Easy Tango Styles”
