OK.. I'm about to wrangle a few feathers.
The character of that "tango ", seemed like a 100 metre sprint. Where has the element of" light and shade " gone ? .
Maybe it's the editing.
I don't think so.. just look for one ex. at the timing of promenades .
No " delay " is evident in many cases. The hall mark of a great dancer ( Scrivener, Irvine, Binnick , Hiltons et al ) is how they expressed timing . Accents thru "poses " only, seems to be the only place they occur .
I thought the butt-bump was cute. But I don't get the ladies bringing their heads to vampire-bite position. Whazzup with that/when did it become a thing?
Agreed. Even when there is stillness, it feels like they're racing through it.
Agreed with comments on the racing and odd head movements seen here. Standard in WDSF comps seems to be changing to the point it doesn't look like the same dances at times. Not the direction I'd like to see standard go, personally.
"But I don't get the ladies bringing their heads to vampire-bite position" funny comment.very descriptive of some of those movements!
LOL I used to have one of those in my routine with my partner over 10 years ago. So I can't really tell you when it became a thing.
Not a fan of it...in a competitive setting, seems like a blasphemous invasion of personal space. Better for show dancing than comping, IMHO.
Yeah, with the sound off, it looks like foxtrot.
