[articolo] – Perché le persone ballano Tango


Un articolo interessante scritto da Veronica Taumanova.

Una riflessione interessante sul perché le persone ballano tango.

Ogni persona inizia a ballare tango per un suo proprio motivo.

Alcune di queste smetteranno di ballare dopo un anno di corso, altre smetteranno dopo due anni, altre ancora dopo 3 anni.

Le motivazioni sul perché le persone smettono di ballare, probabilmente, non sono da ricercare sul perché si mettono, quanto piuttosto sul perché non continuano.

Cosa cercano e cosa trovano le persone che continuano a ballare sono oviamente personali, tuttavia fra i ballerini che ballano da molti anni possiamo trovare dei denominatori comuni che sono spiegate in questo articolo.

Buona lettura!

 

Why there is so little dance in people dancing tango

In one of my articles I wrote that the most difficult thing for a tango teacher is not teaching the correct movement, it is getting people to dance. So what is it that we teachers (and dancers) find so difficult? Common dictionaries define dance as “moving rhythmically to music, typically following a set sequence of steps”. On the surface this definition is correct and according to it every single person on the dancefloor is dancing. But soldiers marching to a military song are also moving rhythmically to music. Intuitively you always recognise people who are dancing and who are just “moving rhythmically” when you are in a milonga. You will always prefer to watch those who dance.

So what is it you like watching? What is dance? Let’s first see what it is not.

Dance is not technique. You don’t need the perfect technique to dance, it is actually the other way around. You need to dance to build a skill. Dance does not come from the understanding of shapes, balance and dynamics, nor from the physical ability to create those shapes, balance and dynamics. You need the technique to make your dance effortless and expressive, but even a small child can already dance. In great artists you admire the technique, but it is the dance that touches you emotionally.
