I came across this video shot during the recent Denver festival. It's a festival that has focused on "close embrace" tango. However, they aren't dancing to tango music in this video. I had no idea what kind of music was played at "alternative" music dances until I saw this one. I was stunned by the fact that dancers would even consider moving together to a French song on guitar that has no strict tempo or danceable rhythm. I don't feel this can be described as tango since the music isn't tango. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjSEmGf7r6c&feature=related Would anyone else want to dance tango to this? Do the dancers appear to be enjoying themselves? This video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OplUFeukicY&NR=1 has to be the worst example of a tango teacher dancing to other music and calling it tango. Tango is an embrace; he has none with his partner. Perhaps that is one reason she has found another. Buenos Aires has a young swing dance community who are very interested in learning Lindy Hop, Balboa, Jazz. They use authentic music from the USA for dancing and hire local jazz bands to play for their dances. They dance to the music that originated the dances.
