    I like this.:ladiesma:..only in my experience, there are leg muscles that are at times, in the stance, doing the opposite and pushing the legs
    apart not together in order to hold balance. I don't need to keep pulling the legs together once they are standing together.
    .. comment, please?

    To me this means "the floor is your friend". And to use it, like a swimmer or boat uses the water. For support and for leverage...

    I like this a lot too!:ladiesma: And that's exactly how it feels when it's working.

    Mario: It is a personal dance credo of mine... "The floor is my friend... The floor is my friend..."

    Firstly, I was getting a wee worried about the kissy thingy until I saw that you had given Ray one, too. :cheers: Just kidding.

    Secondly, You are correct. The legs have these functions, and, of course, the trick (bane of this thread) is to learn how to maintain the described feeling throughout the movement (using the floor as Ray posted. The answer: proper footwork... inside edges (or does that open another can of worms?).

    Speaking of a room in SmdA, I have been trying to locate mi amor in Leon for a while now. When I do, I'll come down.

    Crikey! That would be great. We now have good danceable live music for tango at least twice a week, there are a sort of Tango wars starting between competing restaurants...we just need dancers, now.:tongue:
