Ha Ha, very funny. Suggest you read my post again. And you make my point. It's a performance - indeed he is showing off how clever he is! I never said you couldn't enjoy it for what it is, that's their purpose after all. But I'd rather not be on the same floor as others "performing" like that, it doesn't create easy co-existence as is proved at many milongas. For me tango is not choreographed "moves" or step sequences - been there, done that and left it behind. For me tango is dancing in the moment to the music, that is indeed the charm of it. Pre-learned moves don't usually fit the music unless they are choreographed. Much of Tristezas was just ignored here. As I've said before it's already too late; you confirm that though there are exceptions. What most people abroad perceive as Argentine Tango is not what the Argentines themselves dance. It amuses me to learn that people going to BsAs ask teachers to prepare them for dancing there. Isn't that recognition enough that mostly we don't actually dance Argentine Tango but some derivation received via show-tango/fantasia which seems to have morphed into a semi-standardised teaching tango abbreviated for marketing and convenience to VU. And while many are learning so-called Villa Urquiza, my understanding is that the original VU has been largely lost in favour of staying in a milonguero embrace. See the Tango Voice blog for more about that.
