The architecture of tango...
Post date: Dec 18, 2014 10:44:59 PM
When teaching posture and alignment I often talk about the support legs of leaders and followers being like architectural columns. When discussing technique I often use engineering terms such as momentum, leverage, fulcrum, and anchor, for example.
Is this one of the reasons so many men with 'engineering minds' are attracted to tango? Is it because they love the inherent logic, geometry and structure of tango? I certainly wasn't born with an engineering mind but my experience of leading has certainly fired up a few neural pathways in that part of my brain!
I can't help feeling that an engineer or architect created this image!
