The Art and Technique of Adornment with Olga Besio
This class covers adornment for both leader and follower, with concepts, exercises, and demonstrations woven together into a long prose poem. Olga is a fascinating teacher with a deep understanding of the emotional intimacy of tango that is truly the root of its technical adornment. There are sections on rhythmic, spatial, elastic, caressing, turning, joint specific, and boleo adornments. There are demos throughout by Olga and Daniel, and two never before seen performance pieces by Gustavo and Olga. Filmed in 1997 in Buenos Aires. Produced, edited, and translated by Daniel. (approx. 90 mins.)
Material suitable for dancers at all levels of experience.
Olga Besio and Gustavo Naveira were considered to be revolutionary dancers and teachers in the tango's revival in the 1990s. They organized many of the revival's most important practices and trainings. Olga filmed this exceptional class, accompanied and translated by Daniel in 1997, while Gustavo was touring in Europe.
