Revealing your dancing level?

According to this news clip the body temperature pattern can reveale if you are in love. The consequensies for a couple could be devastating if a free test will be available in future. There could be terrifying options for bodies which are functioning significantly different and test results will segregate them to a lonely life.

On the other hand there could be different use for this kind of checks! For example there maybe is a difference in temperature when you are in a PRACTICA mode and your brain is monitoring your movements and planning the coming steps compared to when your are actually dancing. I think that in the DANCING mode your brain is in a different state and the emotions are more active, you feel your dance. This could produce a different thermographic pattern, noticable in an external device. It could reveal at what level your dancing shifts back to practica level, when you need to think how to dance. This shift is different for different dancers and it goes together with the skil level. The more skilled couple the later the shift comes!

So in the future the organicer asks you to dance, points her mobile phone at you and places you to level x on the workshop weekend!

Here you have the link to the love version of the body thermography test:

A tip from a DJ

Are you a DJ and for the moment unsure about a song; Is it danceable or not? Does it put the dancers in fire?

According to a colleague of yours you can use the Youtube as tool to check it out!

If there is a lot performances using that song it could be a real hit at your milonga!

But pay attention! There are fals friends like Libertango

It is enormous popular as a exhibition song but it is very seldom played in a milonga. I think the only occasion per year for me is the summermilonga; a large informal outdoor milonga for several hundreds of dancers every Friday night - there we will hear it even this summer the Gace Jones version, please!

Here is the portal I builded around this song. The subtitles poping up give you a playlist, just cklick the smal video icon to choose that path!

mixed couples - Roxana & Fernando

During this song they are dancing with a new partner and the new kind of song adds up a lot to the complexity of the performance! This is really testing the edges of their combined skills.

I have a deep respect for the Fernando Sanchez skill and technical knowledge he has. I have had only one weekend with a few workshops to base my opinion on but he is a great leader with a clear analysis how the movements are created and easy way to communicate his points to a student.

Roxana has developed to be a radiant performing diva without the negative sides of that word. Together here they find the music wonderfully and the performance is playful joyful

Check her smiles on the way!

Tango moves shown as colors/patterns

Murat Erdemsel is a visual artist too and he has made many efforts, more than anyone I know, to show the dance and music in visual form. Here is one where Sigrid and he have devices attached on their bodies and the researchers show the colorful dance pattern on the wall.

Peninsula - An Asian lady leader

Peninsula has been in Argentina for long periods studying tango and Spanish. If I do remember it right she started her tango studies as a Copes student and for a later days her development has been guided by the appreciated tango pedagogues Carlos Peres and Rosa Forte.

Here she is dancing a walz with Yasmin Karatuna, a gorgeous follower.

Jinsuk Muchacha was her follower on the first videos I spotted at Youtube.
