Evolution?

I hear it every so often: that tango technique, especially for women, has gone through a tremendous evolution since the resurgence in the early 1980s. Let’s just say I’m not quite convinced. Watch this clip from the 1988 movie Tango Bar, and draw your own conclusions.

    I was just watching it and wanted to post it on FB half an hour ago. 🙂

    You should watch the entire movie. Although this is probably the best/most authentic dancing, the rest is definitely worth watching as well.

    Fantastic! Amazing! And the leader’s technique kicks ass too.

    the film, Tango Nuestro Baile is a great archeological find too …

    Absolutely, Tango: bayle nuestro is a must see. Fortunately there are also some other pearls appearing on youtube these days. Since most of the great milongueros are gone, old footage is the real treasure.

    I don’t think anyone in their right mind would question the ability of the (male) milongueros, but then people today make all kinds of ridiculous claims.
