Not your typical tango dance

...Sure I may go for something risky from time to time, and if it doesn't go as expected, I accept that I probably didn't do something as well as it could have been, but I'm not going to dwell on it, or let it keep me from enjoying the experience...
I think we're talking about more or less the same thing. I don't do things for the sake of them being risky or uncertain, and if they don't go well I don't consider them poorly executed. I just like getting an idea - not necessarily a new combination - maybe just a new way of doing what I commonly do, or a different expression or timing. I just try things out sometimes to see what will happen. The end result is neither correct or incorrect. It's something like trying out a new flavor in a recipe, to see what happens, and maybe I'll do it again or maybe I'll discard the idea. I think of it as creativity; it's a process, not an end result.

I like to go "over the edge". That is, with a good partner, to loose complete control, to go with my partner where we haven't been before. If it comes out nicely, it's fulfilling. If it doesn't, it's rewarding to have at least tried to go somewhere not already rehearsed. I like to go over the edge until the dance breaks and we have to recover. It's exciting. My intention is not try to break dances, but I like to expand the envelope. If we don't go over the edge, then we don't know where the edge is. I want to explore the limitations of our dance until it breaks. I find liveliness in going beyond the practiced and rehearsed routines.
I like that and sometimes employ it...yesterday i in the middle of a vals.. i did something but dont even know what it was..my partner went 'ooooh' with appreciation and i said 'I've never done that before.....'

Are you part of milonga police squad?

I saw them dancing at milonga during one festival.

Were Julio Balmaceda and Corina de la Rosa dancing together or with people attending the festival?

There are dancers in Buenos Aires who go every day to the milongas. Julio and Corina are teachers (and they have a baby). Like most teachers in BsAs, they don't go to dance in the milongas, let alone dance with others. When they dance, it's during class or an exhibition. It's the same for professionals who appear on stage in tango houses in BsAs. They never set foot in a milonga. For them, tango is work. For milongueros, it's pleasure.

It seems that you have unique experience from BsAs.
I saw them dancing with other, them and many other professional dancers.

I don't know their motivation but I know they dance.
