Tango, Breathing and the Entrega

I’ve learnt something interesting about the role of breathing in dancing tango and how it would enhance the possibilities of the entrega.

It works like this. My partner, the leader, shifts his weight to his right axis and takes a breath which is visible to my gaze. As he steps forward to either start or continue the dance, he exhales and we flow forward. If I’m with him, I will breathe in and out in response.

That’s the theory which I learnt last week in a lesson with David and Di of Sidewalk Tango. It sounds simple, feels good and I’m looking forward to trying to remember to think about my breathing whilst dancing.
