Thank you for these posts. It's fascinating to compare and contrast them with the one roughly contemporary cartoon I've seen (which I'll link on my name), as well as with argentine tango as it's danced now. I've been reading the descriptions and trying to work out what they are as tango steps. A lot of them seem pretty reasonable and easy to do given the way he says the partners should not dance "too close together", but as you say in the first post of the series, the overall result seems very distinct. The whole thing reminds me a little bit of tango as it was often discussed by jivers and cerocers between five and ten years ago, ending up with a quite different dance.
