We received an email from Adela last week - she wanted to share some recent videos of her dancing with her son Gaston.
We had actually come across some of the videos on Youtube a few weeks ago, and we we were wondering who the handsome young gentleman was dancing with Adela. Adela is one of the best (if not the best), most talented milongueras in Buenos Aires, she doesn't dance with just anybody. Man Yung was very jealous and started crying.
Joking! When we watched the videos, we were impressed by the young gentleman's embrace, musicality and very milonguero style of dancing. It was shocking to learn from Adela's email that in fact Gaston is her son!
"But Adela looks so young, no way can she have a grown up son!" said Man Yung.
Not only does Adela have a grown up son, she has a grown up son who DANCES LIKE A DREAM. Everyone should take notes from Gaston and Adela's dancing on how to dance musically, smoothly, with lovely embraces and excellent floorcraft - how to dance very milonguero milonguero.
Here's two videos, one of Adela and Gaston dancing Vals at La Nacional, and another of them dancing Tango at home. We'll post a video of Gaston dancing with another extraordinary milonguera and Adela's good friend Elba Biscay in the next post! Enjoy.
