    Naked, he? Aren't we a family forum, Sagitta?

    You sure you're talking about tango? :lol:

    Just kidding. That's lovely and so true!

    What is a haiku? :? I just saw so much poetry in the salsa forum that I felt it was time to have a little in AT. Care to contribute BTM?

    AT is a dance of subtlety, isn't it? I just gave the beginning and the end in order that people could use their imagination as to what happened during the song. The embrace...closeness to give the image of how in AT people dance really close, and to contrast that with not dancing anymore...

    What I was taught at the last AT class:

    Tango is a dance of love, but it's also a dance of hate; you don't want to get too far away from your partner, but you don't want to be too close either. So you always keep the same distance. He walks towards you, you walk back. He tries to walk away from you, you go right back in front of him.

    My cross step improved a bit after that session...
