Good Dancers Just Flyin’ Casual

Standard

Sometimes there’s nothing more pleasurable to watch than two talented dancers just playing around and having a good time. Showcase and competition performances have their place, but there’s something so thrilling about watching two dancers create something spontaneous and beautiful. It’s a glimmering snapshot in time, that will can never be captured or experienced again…

Unless it’s through the magic of YouTube. God, I love YouTube.

If you’re Facebook buddies with Craig, you’ll be able to see this video.

Sorry to all those who aren’t and can’t see it. I don’t know how to “snitch” videos, and I don’t think I’d do it to a friend without their permission. Here’s my appeal to Craig: please oh please put this on YouTube!

🙂

This video is from the Argentine Tango studio he’s studying at right now in Buenos Aries. It shows two local tango dancers (husband and wife, I think) just doing their thing in one corner of a crowded studio. They’re not trying to be flashy. And they’re not in turbo-super-self-conscious  practice mode either. They’re just dancing. It’s a private moment in the middle of a crowded room, and all the more special because of it.

I’ll try to find another example on youtube that’s more accessible and I’ll put that up.

Enjoy!
