芝加哥的马上就来Chicago SummerDance (dance in the park, June 27 – Aug 24):
其实阿根廷探戈的基本步are REALLY easy and simple: SEE BELOW.
It is a beautiful and sensual dance, nowadays very popular throughout the world. However, it has an interesting and rather seedy beginning, started in the early 1900 as a “street dance” danced on the streets, in bars and brothels in the working-class neighborhoods in Argentine by the poor emigrates from Europe.
At the time, there were a lot more boys than girls. So the boys had to try their very best to be the most impressive dancer on the floor in order to a get the attention from the ladies – a behavior not much different from that of a peacock showing off its feathers! It is also why in this dance it is common to see men dancing with men: in the early days boys tried to come up with fanny moves and practiced with each other in secerets so that they can surprise the ladies and their rivals on the dancing floor – a tradition that lasted till today.
THERE IS NONE: 只要顺着乐旋点往前走就是了！！！Anyone can learn the basic steps within 10 minutes and achieve "闻乐起跳”的水平!
Basic rhythm: 8 beats: 1 – 2 – 3 – 4， 5 – 6 - 7 – 8
Man: left foot go forward on "1", then simply walk forward with the beats. Then repeat.
Lady: same but "mirror" the steps of man.
2) Dance. 以上就可以使你达到任何地方"闻乐起跳“的水平!
Again, because the basic steps are so simple. Later you can add many exciting steps quite easily like in this sample. As a street dance where REALLY is no rules and anything goes. It is a totally improvised dance: the leader leads whatever he wishes, and the follower follows.
3) Lead and Follow – the conversation between the dancers without speaking: the foundation of any dance.
The whole 阿根廷探戈thing is done through the man and woman talking to each other without speaking – kind of fun! Here is what I mean by lead-follow in dancing – I will use salsa as an example, but the same concept applies to every dance, without exception - particularly in Argeniten tango:
4) Dance Everywhere
Unlike other "fancy" ballroom dance, you can dance this dance anywhere:
