B. Vals

1. Juan D’Arienzo “Pabellon de las rosas”

a. Pedro ‘Tete’ Rusconi (1936 – 2010) & Silvia Ceriani


Tete and Silvia dance in an embrace throughout the dance; the position of their arms is stable. They use small steps and keep their feet close to the ground. Neither Tete nor Silvia use adornments. Tete keeps Silvia’s turns compact. He is constantly playing with the rhythm of the music, alternately stepping on either 1, 1 & 2, and 1, 2 & 3 of the vals rhythm. He also creates pauses and suspensions in Silvia’s dance, giving her time to complete her movements.

b. Daniel Martinez & Adriana Salgado Neira


Daniel and Adriana’s dance is characterized by flexibility in partner position, including an embrace, an open hold facing each other with both hands on the partner, a side by side position with both moving facing and moving forward and arms outstretched forward in the direction of movement (0:16 – 0:19) [a modified promenade position], a one hand hold transition position, and the al reves position (1:29 – 1:40). Their dance is rich with conspicuous adornments, including high kicks by Adriana, and ganchos and large radius dibujos by both dancers. Other stage tango moves include jumps and lifts and twirls.
