if tango is passion, why are detlef and melina so, … , ah, … , distant from one another.
no tummy touching here, that is for sure. or, any other kind of touching.
a chaperone at an 8th grade dance would have been proud of them, as they most certainly did not require being pried apart, or sprayed w/ cold water. laughing.

No tummy-touching in tango, John!

I’m always fascinated when leaders lead tiny steps and followers actually pick them up!
And Fausta, some body types lend themselves well to tummy-touching. Sometimes, it can’t be helped 🙂

Tango allows all kind of postures, but it’s not only about passion, especially social tango. This is kind of a cliché.
And with some partners, you touch tummies, with others you don’t, depending on the anatomy. I’m actually quite happy, that Detlef and I are not touching tummies, ’cause that means, we’re not so fat after all.
But there is a lot of breast/chest touching. 😉

Melina! What an honor to see you here. I greatly admire your dancing.
I’ll be attending your upcoming workshop(s) in New York.
