The principles of BLINDFOLD TANGO was introduced to Singapore by Moti Buchboot of Organic Tango in 2008.

What is Blindfold Tango and why should we learn this skill? Tango is a dance that depends on keeping an uncluttered and focused mind, to deal with many moving ...parts (partner, other dancers on the floor, the music). Closing one's eyes allows the dancer to stop unproductive distractions and concentrate on the core of the dancing, which is to return to the "abrazo" (embrace) at every figure, and to communicate each lead and follow clearly. The principle of Blindfold tango is well understood and regularly practised by tango teachers around the world. Here is a class video from Organic Tango of USA https://youtu.be/IU6ESW0BHdY | Join the FREE blindfold tango sessions on 14/15/16 October at Public Libraries, sign up at https://abrazosclub.com/gtm2016
