60 MIN INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO
Milonga Traspie in Close Embrace with Daniel & Rebecca
Daniel shares the milonga as it is danced in close embrace, using traditional single time vocabulary and the traspie, or double time step, used by the milongueros. The material covered includes basic walking and turning steps in single time and more complicated variations in double time. The resulting smooth and pleasant amalgamation of steps allows you to improvise socially in a fun, musical way. Rebecca assists throughout. Produced and edited by Daniel. (60 mins. V105)

Daniel and Rebecca were among the first partnerships (1991-96) to introduce serious social tango skills to dancers in North America. They were famous for the clear and concise organization of the material, easy to understand translations of the basic movements and techniques, and accessible exercises. Almost 20 years later, these videos are important and relevant markers of the styles in which the last generation of "milongueros" taught the first generation of revival tango teachers. Here is the underlying form, before any complications in the subsequent, and ongoing, waves of modern innovation.
