unconventional embrace

tango improvisation laughing dancers

It’s a shame that the lady’s moving hand here partially obscures the man’s face. Taken at Spitalfields, I like this unconventional shot because they are so obviously having fun. However, tango purists wouldn’t recognise this as tango because what they’re doing is improvisation outside the salon tango norms.

Speaking as a non-purist, it is exactly this improvisation that makes dancing with this man so much fun!
