Leading up to tomorrows Practica at the Falmouth Tango Centre, here is a beautiful interpretation to Lucio Demare by, as those of you who know me, my favourite dancing partnership. If you can spot anything you would like to practice I would be a willing partner at the practica. Not that I’m saying I know how and what but just willing to try!
A contribution to the FalmouthTangoCentre Practica on the 8th of September , focusing on Carlos Di Sarli. I love this clip below demonstrating the beauty and pleasure that can come from the walk and embrace in harmony with the music of Di Sarli.
Then interesting to see them dance to the same song in “performance mode” yet still improvised
I was fortunate enough to experience a lesson by Pablo Rodriguez & Noelia before their partnership ended, sad that it did end but then again The dance with Carlitos is brings something else. Here below is a clip to another Di sarli with Noela now dancing with Carlitos

Ahead of tonights Practica at the Falmouth Tango Centre I watched a clip I love from 2011 of Noelia Hurtado dancing with Pablo Rodriguez . Many years ago I took a great lesson with them. They are no longer dancing partners. Noelia now dancing with Carlitos Espinoza a dancer who I would love to take lessons with.
The excellent class with was on a turn that uses an elegant spiraling method that despite its energy remains very “maluable’ as in soft not harsh. Sadly I didn’t quite get to embody it and have since totally forgotten it. Perhaps this evening at the practica we can break it down and remember how to do it .
It’s always interesting to se how one dancer with another dancer will adapt and change. Some say you should simply dance the way you dance. I like the idea of change and adaptability whilst keeping your core/ soul. So here is a clip with Noelia dancing with Carlitos. Not to the same song but to Canaro and although a different singer has something of the same feel. So interesting to compare the different dance.
Just a reminder in case you have not been for a while.
There is no class or Practica on the 4th
This is due to hall be rented out to a previous commitment.
Friday 11th of November. will be the next Class and Practica
Heres a memory from Buenos Aires where I filmed some “street sleepers outside a very special Milonga revelling to the music. Listening is good , you don’t have to dance every dance!
Forgive some of the editing of the close up feet being out of synch with the music but I hope you enjoy the vibe of those hot warm nights and are inspired to dance into the night with us this friday. Fundamentals class at 19:00 followed by Practica at 20:00. Usual venue
A reminder that there is no Practica this Friday the 30th of September .
So next class and Practica will be Friday 7th of October and every Friday in October
Responding to popular demand the Tango Centre Falmouth are hosting a Practica
Every Friday in October
At the last weeks Practica at The Tango Centre Falmouth I mentioned my unfinished film about the Tango and the Embrace. A few of you asked to have a look. Remembering I had You tubed a trailer a long while back here is a link. It’s changed quite a bit since then. Not least the “working title” from Tango at the Crossroads to My Perfect Embrace.. I think I have left the crossroads! Not in tango but in life. In the trailer there is quite a bit of talking in the last edit there is a lot more of the lessons and dancing
