I looked up from my Anthropologie/Lululemon websurfing to look at what Man Yung was looking at on his iPad. It was my turn to snort. "I don't think it's 2xTango's fault - this is the only stuff they could videotape in Buenos Aires these days."
"What was that all about? I don't think they did anything for three minutes...except poses!"
"In fact, I lost count of the number of times he dipped her. She better wash her hair when she gets home - you don't know what's been tracked onto the dance floor with the explosion of doggie-doo on the streets this spring."
Don't try this at home, kiddies - this kind of tango takes a lot of skill,
And yes, apparently you are not a real tango dancer unless you do a lot of leg-lifting, Rockettes style!
I had better things to do than to watch this kind of "Tango-Voguing", but I had one more thing to add. "Man Yung, do you know who the guy is? He's the guy that you really admired for a while, the one who danced with Natacha Poberaj in Zotto's show!* You know, that guy!"
Man Yung thought a little bit, and it dawned on him. "What, that guy???!?"
Yes, it was that guy.
This is a question that we have to ask quite often when it comes to Tango.
* By the way, THAT was choreography as well - but choreography that actually had something to do with the Tango that is danced rather than someone's fantasy about Tango.
