Here are the list of songs that we danced to last night:
If you do a search on youtube you can see how other dancers have applied the rhythms. Please take note that if you are watching a tango performance the use of space will not be relevant to the social dance floor. However, you can certainly learn a lot about rhythm from looking at videos.
Carl has offered a video that he found from a lesson on youtube relating to dancing to D’arienzo. I like it a lot. Similar tools to what we have been using. BUT also consider that in a social dancing environment we use less space. Please note the elasticity in the legs. Ladies, observe the tapping adornments with the feet and the lovely adornment following the salida at 0:35 sec.
To understand the music of D’arienzo I think that you need to see some videos of him conducting his orchestra. I am sure I am related to this guy J. He reminds me of my dad.
Here is ‘Loca’ (Crazy)
How long are the weeks
when you are not close to me.
I don’t know what superhuman strengths
give me courage far away from you.
The light of my hope having died,
I am like the shipwrecked in the sea
I know I get lost in the far horizon
but I cannot resign myself.
Oh! how sad it is to remember
after having loved so much
that happiness that went by
flower of an illusion
Oh! forget my scorn,
return, my sweet,
to our love
and it will bloom again
like that flower.
In our warm and rose colored room
everything it’s the same as it was
and in each ornament, in each thing
I continue looking at you like I did yesterday.
Your photo on the little table
is a witness of our love
and that already withered hydrangea
which was the song of my pain.
Please feel free to share to anyone who may be interested in D’arienzo.
