You start well and end badly. Most, if not all dances, evolve with and from their music, sometimes the music is itself influenced by the changing dance, ballroom tango music being a reasonably clear example. It isn't a hold, it's an embrace. The repertoire doesn't need to be poor, nor in fact does there need to be a repertoire at all. Different lead in today's idea of Tango de Salon maybe because of its perpetration Worldwide. Back in the day today's generally accepted interpretation was just one of many Tango Salon styles and coexistent with the then unnamed milonguero. You'd be surprised then how un-narrow a more rhythmic tango within the embrace can be. To make something of it is much more challenging to both partners than Nuevo. And, frankly, much more satisfying. But each to their own, just not on the same floor please. Nuevo is a different dance with different and conflicting dynamics. And I thought we were smoking the pipe of peace!!! NB. Thanks dchester.
