..enjoyable to watch but not my favorite style of Tango.
Would you call it Salon? At this point I am differentiating
between three different styles of Arg.Tango; Milonguero, Salon, Nuevo.
..any (sincere) opinions on this breakdown would be appreciated.:rocker:

Think Nuevo has got nothing new, but the attitude. So I wouldn´t reservate a pigeon-hole. But, you will find as many classifications as dancers are in this forum. For me, Milonguero is the style of the 30th, Salón the one of the 40th, and Nuevo is the style that reflects the music of the 60th. Besides, there are two systems of holding: parallel and V-embrace. And there are two systems of walking: flexed and straight. Put them together, and you will have all sorts of style variations.

Concerning your first question. I would call it Villa Urquiza. Alejandro (excuse me) looks and dances much older than he actually is. Hope he gets younger the longer he will dance.

I really like his smooth movements. It's something I aspire to be able to do (although I'll likely never reach his skill level). The only thing I could possibly fault him on is that I would have liked a little more energy for that particular song.
Love it!

Re the energy, this is why I incessantly defer against most musicality classes. You are correct in stating, "...that I would have liked a little ..." His is not wrong. The musicality is simply different.

You are (of course) 100% correct. He is expressing his feelings, not mine.

BTW, I like this guy's style so much, that I looked for some other videos of his. Here is one that I like even better (probably because his interpretation matches my feelings on how it should be done).

Now if I could only do it as well as him . . .
