    Looking for social dancing videos

    Thanks so much for the Tete video. This kind of musicality and simplicity is exactly what I was looking for. After studying the moves for a bit I was able to dance my wife in our tiny kitchen with some confidence. She noticed the (positive) difference. I’ll be studying him some more. And...

    Looking for social dancing videos

    Yes, this is exactly what I was looking for. So many beautiful and musical moves such as the little steps she takes at 1:18. And, I can only hope to be dancing at their age.

    Looking for social dancing videos

    Hi all, I'm having a difficult time finding examples of good to great 'social dancing' tango on YouTube and was wondering if anyone has recommendations? There are tons of videos that fall into two primary areas: instruction of a specific move and then performance. However, to find examples...

    What are the 5 top reasons that make a man ask a woman to dance? Beauty comes first?

    Tango reminds me of high school and the wide variety of folks with different interests and cliques. I choose women based on a wide variety of factors depending on how I feel. But, I always make time to cabaceo someone new to make them feel welcome. It makes me a bit nervous to do so, because...

    Recommended teaching videos?

    My favorite for beginners is Howcast's Tango here: For more complex moves, I like Clint Rauscher's instruction here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCjn2RkLv9YffF5WnwWpo5SA I have some criticism of his style and don't emulate it, but his explanation of moves and the vast number of moves he has...

    Rotating partners vs dedicated partner

    I need some of everything to improve: 1. A bit of a regular partner with whom to practice and give feedback; and to work out moves together. As we know how each other moves, it is very clear to separate where I am leading and she is following. With a random partner there are too many...

    Miles apart embrace

    So speaking of embraces...there is a woman I dance with and she is a good dancer but has a habit of letting her right hand go completely limp and slide out of my hand. After dancing with her a while and getting to know her a bit, I asked her why her hand was going limp. I thought perhaps I was...

    Thanks very much for the information and the videos. It's definitely enough to get me started. I did not realize there was such a vibrant tango community in Stockholm.

    Miles apart embrace

    I think the approach is one of both teacher and classmate. In both cases the most one can do is to inform the student of their choices and the pros/cons' and that their understanding will develop over time. In all cases there isn't a reason to judge or offer unsolicited advice more than once...

    In Sweden/Scandanavia

    Hi, I'll be traveling Aug 15-29 and be based out of Stockholm, Sweden. I will have some days off to seek out Tango and can travel if there is something of particular interest. I'm aware of one Tango resource for Stockholm...

    Berlin Tango

    I can't vouch for the accuracy of the following image, but it has a lot of locations. So, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. http://embrace-berlin.de/locations.html My suggestion is to search on 'berlin tango' and there are a few websites (some mentioned in previous posts) and find out...
