What is cadence in tango?
Tango is unlike any other dance. Maybe that’s why it’s practically impossible to improvise a few tango steps if we don’t have someone to guide us . One of the factors that makes it so different from other dances is what is called cadence.
Generally speaking, cadence is the pace or speed with which we take the steps. This is common to all genres. The difference is that, in almost all dances, cadence is marked by music: you dance at the same rhythm as the music makes. In fact, not doing it like this would be wrong.
Interpreting the music
The tango, on the other hand, allows us to dance to the same rhythm as the music, or faster —up to twice the speed— or slower — half the speed—. Up to us allows you to stop and stay completely still. However, the most relevant of this is that you don’t dance at the same pace throughout the song. The good dancer knows how to find his own cadence: alternates different speeds depending on the music and even whatever the lyrics say. It’s about interpreting music in a personal way. It’s for this motif that no dancer is equal to the other: each dances the theme to his way.
Cadence is the result of feeling the music. To feel the tango. That’s why I don’t know can teach: you have no rules, you learn on the track, dancing and dancing. Is linked to the feelings of each dancer and, also, to the complementation with his partner. If this complementation is not achieved, it is difficult to establish a good cadence. In , tango consists of making the couple feel how one lives the music, and let the steps lead you to fly in this magical and unique dance.
