Tango-Beat's Last Entry
Tango-Beat, my blog, has a new name.
Since 2009 I have been writing a blog, which I thought would be more about music and especially rhythms of tango. Sure, I have written on this, but rarely. It is time for a change, especially because a company called Tango Beat has full rights to that name.
I recommend that you check out the excellent service they do for tango dancers at:
The new name of my blog is:
I have a new entry there already, called the Essence of Tango, because as I was moving over my blog to the new name, it was a draft I accidentally published.
PS. My blog was nearly named "Tango Iconoclast." However, I decided on "Tango Therapist" over "Tango Iconoclast." because I am perhaps the opposite of this. As a few people have pointed out, I am not up to the task of being an iconoclast. That's hard work! And much of what I promulgate is a return to traditional tango because of its therapeutic effect in contrast to an every-increasing love of show-tango and tango-as-tourism. I promote the ideat ideat that a man and a woman taking full responsibility for being present in a dance. This notion is not iconoclastic but the return to the sacred icon that has been shattered by the same producers (or mentality) that is behind "Dancing with the Stars." (Sorry if you like this show.)
