Applications and benefits of the Tango Lexicon.

  1. Taking notes on combinations learned in workshops

  2. Using a randomization tool to generate a novel sequence to explore

  3. Transcribing segments of video to look for patterns

  4. Games of mental tango: I play one move and send it to my partner who responds with another, until there is a danceable sequence - usually a rather unusual one

  5. Remembering hard sequences by making up vivid stories about characters. “The bumblebee bit Oscar severely, and when he asked the oracle Emma if he would survive, she told him…”

  6. Making compact lessons plans that notate the combinations to be taught.

  7. A better grasp of the deep structure of Tango, e.g., what is superficial and what is not.
