My daughter just started taking privates in Stage Performance Tango, and I would like to hear your thoughts on Stage Performance Tango. Is it taken seriously, or is it more of a novelty type tango? Who are some of the big names in this...so she can look at clips? She has only had one private so far,....but it was extremely technical. The instructor used a great deal of ballet terms as well as tango terms. It looks like he is just teaching her Argentine Tango at this point,...so, it seems that S.P.A.T. is just A.T. with lifts and tricks. Correct? Mods...if you can edit the title "performance", I would appreciate it.
