Korea Tango & Argentine group

There are benefits to train together with your peers! You learn about the musicality - more so with a good choreographer! How to relax in the moves so the the performance looks like improvised and still stay synchronized with your peers!

There were several groups in the competition but tis one I like a lot!

Encuentros are more safe

First time on an ordinary milonga this term and I fell to my knees in front of the follower!  (No living thing was harmed in the prosess!)

On the other hand I have managed 3 encuentro milongas in same pants without any problem. I think my feet are working differently in these two types of milongas! At an encuentro I never have had two feet in same leg . . . hmmm

(they are very wide  - 95 cm O )

At Philippines even children dance better than me

How old could they be?  Ten or twelve years?

But what a waltz these kids are showing us!

The choreography is fantastic too!
I will definitely pick some moves from it for private use! :)

They are working really hard for a good dance in the Asia! Check this choreography drill for Kyle!

Tango from the skies!

This is a tango event organized by my home community!  One tango dancer was flying over on warm-air-baloon filming this video. It seems to be in the beginning of the evening so there is still only few dancers but the number of white chairs shows the expectations for this summer evening!

This is a facebook video so I cannot embed it here but if you click the link below you can get the whole thing with sound too! (It was posted 27th of July 2016)

Shanghai Festival

During last weekend they have been dancing in Shanghai! This is the 6th festival and the first time I *participated* - I did it virtually via a live link provided by my Korean Facebook friend. With other words I was sitting on my soffa at home watching the live link showing me the performances and later on the dancing!  All that without any delay!! The time difference is working for me because the performances were some time after the midnight but it was 6 or 7 PM here in Nordic so I could watch them simultaneously with my friends in Shanghai.

The live fb window looks like this with a red eye sybol and a number for the onlookers.

I cannot link any fb videos directly here you get just some links in public mode. 
Thanks 정연도 for the videos!

(I didn't find any method to link individual videos but with this link you come to his fb profile and can find several performances and beautiful dance crowd videos there around the weekend 24.07.2016)

The organizers have exposed the female dancers most! In the program you can find Guillermina Quiroga, Stella Missé and Alejandra Gutty highlighted and their partners are presented further in to the site.

Here some lines about the organizers presented on the page:

Matias Sotto (Argentina) and Vivian Yeh (Taiwan) the two Tango Fanatics that have more than 10 years teaching and dancing experience met in Buenos Aires and are giving Tango lessons and organizing milongas together in regular basic, 5 days a week in Shanghai.
TangoBang has been working closly with Argentina Counsulate to introduce the Tango Culture to Shanghai.

During 2010 Shanghai EXPO, the two parties hosted several successful Tango events in Argentina Pavilion, including the first ever milonga in EXPO, that brought Argentina Tango to Shanghai, China, and the visitors from all over the world.
In 2011, TangoBang successfully hosted the 1st Shanghai International Tango Festival. Tangueros around the world joined the festival was impressed by the passion and the standard of dance in Shanghai.
