Wealth of information, many thumbs up about it. Tango lexicon is genius. I can see how it can help.

"A wonderfully productive, interesting bootcamp! I had a bit of skepticism when the first terms were introduced. "You're going to have us invent and learn new terms for tango moves as a way to make creative explorations easier?!?!" But of course it wasn't so much about the terms themselves as it was the way of thinking about tango in a well structured way that supports either a highly organized or a totally randomized - or both - way of creating and testing tango possibilities. And even though David said this was only about creating or analyzing figures, that exploration -- "What works well?" "Is this possible?" "What must we change to make that work?" -- all played nicely into partner connection, geometry, lead/follow/follow, what fits different sorts of music well, "so THIS is what makes that figure work!", and on and on. I enjoyed how you just assumed that everyone would both lead and follow in the work, and they did. I also appreciated the "stick partner". It was good to see people volunteering for it and making good use of it without waiting for an odd dancer out. Congratulations on developing this system of tango thinking and exploration. I think you've made a significant contribution to the art form."

"I had an amazing experience! The lexicon has given me some ideas about how to share tango with other beginners in digestible chunks. The work was challenging, and the amount of time we had was perfect - it kept us moving forward and challenged, but still allowed us to process the material."
