Kedua tarian ini memiliki beberapa kesamaan tetapi memiliki lebih banyak perbedaan daripada yang mungkin Anda pikirkan. Perbedaan besar antara kedua gaya tarian ini dan cara mereka melakukannya, serta dengan siapa mereka melakukannya. Sementara satu dapat dilakukan sendiri, yang lain membutuhkan orang kedua untuk dianggap sebagai tarian yang tepat.

Salsa dan tango adalah dua bentuk tarian yang indah, bergairah, dan menawan untuk ditonton. Mengingat semua ini, tidak heran mengapa kedua bentuk ini sangat populer di film dan pertunjukan tari seperti “Dancing with the Stars”. Demikian pula, banyak orang memilih salah satu dari dua gaya sebagai bentuk latihan dan cara untuk tetap awet muda. Meskipun gerakan tarian tango dan salsa yang rumit dan intim menarik banyak perbandingan antara keduanya, penari berpengalaman akan memberi tahu Anda bahwa tango dan salsa sangat berbeda satu sama lain:

Tango

Tarian tango sangat populer di kalangan pasangan karena kedekatan tubuh penari. Bahkan, banyak orang menyamakan tarian tango dengan “pelukan berjalan”. Ada banyak variasi tango, tetapi rutinitas yang paling umum kita lihat adalah Tango Argentina dan Tango Ballroom. Tango biasanya merupakan tarian lambat dengan gerakan rumit yang mengekspresikan kedekatan para penari.

Bagi yang baru pertama kali belajar tango, disarankan memakai sepatu bersol kulit. Gerakan dalam tango sangat kuat dan tepat, artinya Anda akan menginginkan cengkeraman yang baik di lantai. Anda juga harus meluangkan waktu untuk menyelesaikan gerakan dengan tepat. Ini akan membantu Anda masuk ke posisi untuk menyelesaikan langkah berikutnya dengan mudah. Mulailah perlahan dan tingkatkan kecepatan Anda saat Anda dan pasangan merasa nyaman dengan gerakan tersebut.

salsa

Tarian salsa didasarkan pada melodi dan irama musik salsa. Secara umum, tarian terdiri dari pola enam langkah melalui delapan hitungan musik. Penari membutuhkan postur yang tepat dan kelenturan yang baik di area pinggul untuk melakukan langkah-langkah dengan sempurna yang telah membuat gaya tarian ini begitu populer. Seperti tango, ada banyak bentuk salsa: Cali, Miami Casino, Cuban Casino, Los Angeles Style, dan New York Style.

Untuk pemula yang ingin belajar menari salsa, penting untuk memahami irama lagu yang diputar di latar belakang. Dengan cara ini, baik pemimpin maupun pengikut dapat mengantisipasi dan menyesuaikan kecepatan gerakan mereka. Terakhir, salsa memiliki banyak gerakan tajam; kendurkan cengkeraman Anda pada tangan pasangan Anda untuk memungkinkan lebih banyak fleksibilitas jari dan pergelangan tangan.

Mengetahui perbedaan antara kedua gaya menari itu penting karena keduanya menciptakan suasana hati yang berbeda di antara Anda, pasangan, dan audiens Anda. Berdasarkan apa yang ingin Anda capai, Anda dapat memilih antara mengambil kelas tango dan mengambil kelas salsa.

Anda juga dapat memilih untuk menghadiri sekolah dansa yang disegani seperti Superior Ballroom Dance Studio dan mempelajari gerakan dasar dari kedua gaya tersebut untuk memberi Anda perasaan yang lebih baik tentang tarian mana yang ingin Anda pelajari lebih lanjut.

Cepat atau Lambat

Musik dan ketukan datang dalam segala bentuk serta tempo. Sementara yang satu mungkin lembut, tempo ketukan tinggi yang lain adalah tempo yang lembut dan rendah. Dengan tango Anda memiliki sangat lambat, instrumental penuh kesedihan atau depresi untuk beberapa orang.

Salsa di sisi lain adalah tempo yang sangat tinggi, cepat dan menarik yang terus berjalan seiring semakin cepat. Perbedaan ritme dan kecepatan adalah perbedaan cara tarian dilakukan. Salsa dilakukan dengan kecepatan yang sangat cepat sementara tango umumnya dilakukan dengan kecepatan lambat, meskipun terkadang mereka sedikit lebih cepat di lantai.

Menyenangkan atau Serius

Salsa hampir merupakan jenis tarian yang tidak pernah serius. Ini dilakukan oleh banyak orang Spanyol dan Amerika Latin di pesta, klub, dan bahkan ulang tahun. Musiknya sangat menyenangkan dan ceria, sementara beberapa mencoba dan membuat gerakan salsa mereka sendiri.

Tango di sisi lain cukup serius dan dilakukan dengan pasangan dengan kecepatan lebih lambat. Langkah-langkahnya harus dipelajari dan Anda tidak bisa hanya mengikuti ritme saat melakukan tango. Anda bisa bersenang-senang dengan tango jika Anda senang melakukannya, tetapi pelajaran diperlukan jika Anda ingin mereka yang menonton memahami drama yang terungkap dengan cara yang akrab.

Sosial

Secara sosial salsa dan tango adalah tarian yang sangat berbeda satu sama lain. Tango dikenal sebagai tarian yang sangat intim dan sensual karena Anda memegang erat pasangan Anda saat Anda meluncur di lantai. Salsa di sisi lain, hanya terdiri dari tangan yang bersentuhan saat Anda memutar diri atau Anda dan pasangan, menggerakkan pinggul mengikuti musik.

Anda dapat melakukan salsa sendirian jika Anda berada di sebuah pesta dan perlu mengguncangnya, tetapi tango adalah pernyataan sosial dan harus dilakukan oleh dua orang yang bersemangat. Biasanya itu bekerja paling baik ketika ada chemistry yang kuat antara keduanya atau rasa yang kuat mendramatisir cerita memberi dan menerima tarian.

Sejarah Visual Tari Salsa di New York

Sejarah Visual Tari Salsa di New York – Salsa lebih dari musik. Sebuah gerakan yang lahir di luar negeri dan dipelihara oleh komunitas imigran di jantung Kota New York, musik uptempo, perkusi dan klakson menggabungkan ritme Latin dan Afro-Karibia untuk menciptakan genre musik pan-Latin pertama yang mencerminkan orang-orang yang tampil, menikmati dan menari mengikuti iramanya.

Sejarah Visual Tari Salsa di New York

lovemusiclovedance – “Salsa tidak pernah benar-benar murni karena selalu menggabungkan begitu banyak suara yang berbeda. Mereka menyebutnya salsa, tetapi [artis seperti] Willie Colón, yang bekerja dengan Héctor Lavoe, membuat musik untuk Puerto Rico. Musisi lain fokus pada suara Kuba,” kata Dr. Derrick León Washington, seorang rekan postdoctoral kuratorial yang mengembangkan Rhythm & Power: Salsa di New York , sebuah pameran di The Museum of The City of New York. “Para musisi mendengarkan jenis musik lain boogaloo dan R&B di akhir tahun 60-an, soul bahasa Inggris dan dan disko di tahun 70-an.”

Label rekaman besar seperti Fania, dan artis yang menandatangani kontrak dengan mereka, mengambil pengaruh tersebut dan fokus membuat musik dalam bahasa Spanyol tetapi tanpa menargetkan budaya apa pun secara khusus. Sifat inklusif dari musik salsa menciptakan kekuatan dan kebanggaan sosial yang sangat besar di antara para pendengarnya, yang menggunakan salsa sebagai batu loncatan untuk aktivisme.

“Salsa menceritakan kompleksitas orang Puerto Rico, Latin, orang kulit berwarna, yang baik, yang buruk dan segala sesuatu di antaranya,” kata Washington. “[Musik Salsa memamerkan] kebanggaan pada orang-orang – bukan karena mereka lebih baik daripada kelompok etnis mana pun, tetapi hampir redistribusi kekuasaan dengan cara yang lebih baik untuk semua orang yang menunjukkan bahwa mereka bukan hanya masalah atau minoritas, tetapi sama baiknya. seperti orang lain.”

Dalam Rhythm & Power, tim kuratorial di MCNY menggunakan fotografi konser, ephemera, video, dan seni album untuk menampilkan budaya New York yang pengaruhnya telah menyentuh dunia. Di sini, museum membagikan gambar pilihan yang menunjukkan bagaimana musik salsa memengaruhi aktivisme di New York City tahun 1970-an, serta budaya tari unik yang terus menentukan genre hingga saat ini.

Ada kontroversi tentang apa itu salsa dan dari mana asalnya  di Puerto Rico atau di Kuba. “Saya berargumen bahwa salsa adalah sebuah industri, industri besar yang dimulai selama kegilaan mambo pada 1950-an,” kata Washington. Pemimpin band Eddie Palmieri menciptakan suara Latin yang lebih berat dan lebih menarik di awal tahun 60-an dengan mengganti biola dengan trombon yang nantinya akan mempengaruhi salsa.

Namun, Palmieri menyebut salsa sebagai “salah nama dan kurangnya rasa hormat” terhadap pola ritmik yang berbeda. “Anda harus mulai dengan rumba. Dari situ muncul yambú. Anda memiliki guaracha, mambo, cha-cha-cha. Mereka semua memiliki nama yang tepat,” kata Palmieri.

Salsa meletus dari jalan-jalan dan klub di New York pada tahun 70-an, saat kota itu menghadapi kebangkrutan, kejahatan meroket dan banyak orang berpenghasilan rendah dan pekerja lingkungan kelas berada di bawah pengepungan sosial dan ekonomi. Di El Barrio, Bronx Selatan dan Lower East Side tempat dengan populasi Latino yang besar dan tempat tinggal banyak musisi kemeriahan musik salsa menjadi soundtrack untuk aktivisme dan reklamasi.

Sementara salsa dapat dianggap hanya sebagai musik dansa, para musisi dan liriknya berbicara tentang realitas kehidupan sehari-hari. Conguero Ray Barretto (yang pengaruhnya dapat dirasakan dalam boogaloo dan jazz serta salsa) adalah direktur musik Fania All-Stars, grup salsa yang menampilkan Joe Bataan, Willie Colón, Mongo Santamaria, Pete “El Conde” Rodríguez dan lainnya . Dia adalah salah satu dari banyak seniman salsa yang mengambil sikap politik dalam musiknya.

“Ray Barretto adalah seorang aktivis yang berfokus pada sosiologi, apa yang terjadi dengan New York City, mengapa ada narkoba dan begitu banyak kekerasan,” kata Washington. “La Gran Fuga [Trombonis dan penyanyi] Willie Colón adalah gambar FBI di sampulnya. Ini semacam lelucon, mengenakan persona orang jahat, tetapi juga beresonansi dengan orang-orang ketika NYC hampir bangkrut.

Salsa menjadi terkenal bersamaan dengan kebangkitan Gerakan Seni Hitam , gerakan Nuyorican dan kelompok nasionalis/aktivis Puerto Rico the Young Lords. “Apa yang benar-benar menarik minat saya tentang waktu itu, dan berkaitan dengan pameran adalah keseluruhan narasi orang Puerto Rico sebagai orang miskin, sebagai berandalan. Itu juga merupakan gagasan kebanggaan, bahwa mereka apa adanya,” kata Washington.

“Ketika media dan pameran hanya berbicara tentang kemiskinan dan imigrasi dalam kaitannya dengan komunitas Latin, ini gagal untuk berbicara dengan banyak dan pengalaman penuh komunitas ini komunitas yang berpotongan,” kata Washington. “Kami bosan dengan narasi tunggal ini.”

Setelah ledakan popularitas awal di Kuba dan Puerto Riko, Salsa dengan cepat menyebar ke seluruh Amerika Latin dan Amerika Serikat, menjadi salah satu tarian Latin paling populer.

Salsa Etymology

Asal mula istilah “Salsa” tidak pernah diidentifikasi secara tepat . Meskipun kata Spanyol yang sama digunakan sebelumnya sehubungan dengan tarian Latin, versi modern dari istilah tersebut dipopulerkan tidak secara organik tetapi dengan dorongan pemasaran dari label rekaman dan promotor yang ingin memperkenalkan tarian ini kepada masyarakat luas. Dalam bentuknya yang paling awal, “salsa” adalah istilah Spanyol yang berarti ” rempah- rempah .”

Kata “salsa!” digunakan secara luas dalam musik Latin sejak pertengahan 1800-an sebagai seruan yang diteriakkan musisi selama pertunjukan mereka. Istilah ini digunakan dalam lagu-lagu yang enerjik, memacu para penari dan musisi lain untuk menjadi lebih hingar bingar, akrobatik, memperkenalkan perubahan gaya bebas, dan “membubuhi” aksi mereka.

Istilah “Salsa” juga bisa menandakan asal mula tarian tersebut, yang dapat ditelusuri dari perpaduan beberapa tarian lainnya. Beberapa sejarawan musik dan tari percaya bahwa istilah “salsa” memiliki arti yang sama dengan “saus”, menandakan campuran bahan yang digunakan dalam penciptaan tarian ini.

  • Istilah “Salsa” lebih dipromosikan oleh industri tari dan musik internasional daripada oleh seniman dan promotor asli Kuba .

Mempopulerkan modern istilah salsa dimulai sekitar tahun 1910 ketika rekaman pertama dari gaya musik ini mulai diproduksi di Kuba. Dengan kedatangan gaya tari dan musik Salsa ke Amerika Serikat (terutama Miami dan New York, kedua daerah dengan sejarah imigran Amerika Latin yang kaya), Salsa mulai menerima promosi yang lebih berat oleh label rekaman dan stasiun radio. Pada 1960-an, istilah Salsa selamanya melekat pada gaya tarian dan musik Latin yang luar biasa ini.

Origin on Cuba

Sementara sejarawan setuju bahwa Salsa modern lahir di Kuba menjelang pergantian abad ke-20, akar pastinya dapat ditelusuri beberapa dekade sebelumnya dalam sejarah musik daerah ini.

Komponen dasar Salsa telah disatukan oleh imigran yang tak terhitung jumlahnya yang datang ke Amerika Latin dari berbagai bagian Eropa dan budak Afrika yang diangkut tanpa keinginan mereka ke Amerika Tengah selama zaman perdagangan Budak.

Pada intinya, Salsa dibuat dari unsur-unsur Son of Cuba , musik troubadour dari Spanyol (Flamenco dan lainnya), Rumbas dari budak Afrika , Danzón dari Perancis , dan imigran Haiti, dan berbagai instrumen yang populer di Kuba.

Sementara Salsa mulai mencengkeram penduduk Kuba pada tahun-tahun terakhir abad ke-19, wilayah lain di Amerika Tengah menyadarinya selama tahun-tahun pertama abad ke-20. Turis dan artis musik membawa Salsa ke beberapa negara Amerika Selatan dan Tengah lainnya, memungkinkan gaya musik ini berubah, tumbuh, dan menjadi warisan budaya yang berpengaruh di seluruh Amerika Latin.

Salsa bukan hanya tarian pasangan. Beberapa gayanya dapat ditarikan dalam satu baris atau dengan dua penari pria dan wanita berbeda yang menari sendiri dan saling berhadapan .

Selama awal 1900-an, Kuba dan negara tetangga Puerto Rico dianggap sebagai “peleburan” tarian dan musik Latin, memungkinkan musisi dan penari dengan cepat dan cepat mengubah berbagai gaya menjadi bentuk seni baru. Selama waktu itu, Kuba mempopulerkan tarian seperti tango , mambo, dan flamenco. Dengan popularitas tarian baru yang meningkat, studio rekaman radio lokal “Fania” memutuskan untuk mempromosikan tarian yang disebut Salsa , dengan cepat mempopulerkannya di seluruh Kuba.

Tidak lama setelah itu, tarian Salsa keluar dari perbatasan Kuba dan mulai menyebar ke seluruh Karibia, Amerika Utara, dan seluruh dunia.

Ekspansi ke Amerika Serikat

Popularitas Salsa meledak begitu tarian ini tiba di Amerika Serikat pada tahun-tahun awal abad ke-20.

Eksposur penting pertama Salsa oleh orang-orang Amerika terjadi selama perang Kuba tahun 1898 ketika Tentara Amerika mulai menikmati versi awal tarian Kuba ini. Pada tahun-tahun setelah perang Kuba, Salsa menjadi daya tarik bagi banyak musisi jazz Amerika yang memasukkan gaya Latin ke dalam penampilan mereka.

Pada akhir dekade pertama abad ke-20, musisi dan promotor Kuba mulai membuat dan mendistribusikan rekaman radio pertama dari lagu-lagu Salsa. Lagu-lagu ini dengan cepat menemukan jalan mereka ke daratan AS. Dihadapkan dengan gaya musik Latin yang baru dan menarik, label rekaman Amerika dan promotor radio dengan cepat menciptakan istilah baru “salsa”. Mereka mulai menggunakannya selama promosi musik Latin optimis apa pun yang diimpor ke AS

Selama tahun 1920-an, ledakan suara musik Latin mulai menyebar ke seluruh Amerika Tengah dan Selatan, yang mengarah pada pengembangan dan mempopulerkan bentuk modern tango, mambo, flamenco , dan beberapa jenis musik dan gaya tarian lainnya.

Selama waktu itu, klub malam di Havana yang tidak pernah tidur bahkan lebih meningkatkan fokus mereka pada Salsa yang populer dan memberikan variasi suara baru yang luar biasa ke negara tetangga Amerika Serikat yang memberlakukan Larangan. Dengan meningkatnya arus turis Amerika di Kuba, Salsa dengan cepat melakukan perjalanan kembali ke Amerika Serikat dan beberapa negara lain di belahan bumi barat. Pada akhir tahun 1920-an, Salsa dan beberapa gaya musik Latin yang berbeda menjadi sangat populer di stasiun radio AS.

Puncak popularitas salsa di Amerika Serikat terjadi selama tahun 1970-an. Dipicu oleh masuknya pekerja Dominika dan Puerto Rico ke benua AS, Salsa dikenal sebagai salah satu tarian paling populer di beberapa pusat musik utama negara dan dipopulerkan di seluruh AS dan dunia dengan karya-karya beberapa musisi terkenal. seperti Johnny Pacheco, Fania All-Stars, Willie Colon dan Reuben Blades.

Popularitas awal Salsa di Amerika Serikat terkait erat dengan satu tempat dansa tertentu – Ballroom Palladium. Terletak di sudut 53rd Street dan Broadway di New York City, aula dansa lantai dua ini menjadi rumah bagi banyak musisi dan imigran Latin yang berlatih dan mempopulerkan beberapa tarian dari tanah air mereka. Dimulai dengan tahun 1948, promotor tari Federico Pagani mengubah Ballroom Palladium menjadi pusat tari Latin di kota.

Aula dansa sering menjadi tuan rumah pertunjukan musik band Arsenio Rodríguez, Machito dan band Afro-Kubanya, dan Tito Puente, salah satu seniman salsa paling terkenal sepanjang masa. Selain band reguler, Palladium Ballroom juga secara teratur menjadi tuan rumah bagi seniman musik dan penari yang melakukan perjalanan ke NYC dari banyak negara Latin.

Sejarawan musik dan tari menganggap Federico Pagani dan Ballroom Palladium sebagai bahan utama untuk mempopulerkan seni tari Latin di Amerika Serikat dan membuka jalan bagi banyak tarian dan klub malam Latin serupa lainnya di Bronx dan Manhattan. Ballroom Palladium ditutup pada tahun 1966.

Sejarah Gaya Salsa

Dalam dekade setelah mempopulerkan awal Salsa di Kuba, beberapa gaya yang berbeda dari tarian ini muncul. Bentuk-bentuk baru ini dengan cepat menjadi terkenal di daerah di mana mereka dikembangkan dan paling sesuai dengan selera musik lokal dan di seluruh dunia. Misalnya, gaya tari Salsa paling populer yang ditarikan di seluruh dunia, termasuk sebagian besar pemula dan amatir, adalah gaya “Cali” Kolombia.

Tiga gaya tari Salsa yang paling populer adalah gaya Kasino Kuba, gaya Cali Kolombia, gaya New York, dan gaya Los Angeles .

Berikut adalah asal usul singkat dari masing-masing gaya tarian Salsa yang populer:

  • Gaya New York; Sementara Salsa dibuat di Kuba, ia mencapai ketenaran planet ketika tiba di New York. Musisi lokal dan banyak imigran Latin (terutama dari Puerto Rico) mulai mengadaptasinya untuk selera lokal. Ini telah memasukkan tema dari genre populer AS, seperti (Jazz, R&B, dan lainnya) dan tarian Latin populer lainnya seperti Mambo.
  • Gaya Los Angeles (“LA”); Meskipun dikembangkan baru-baru ini selama tahun 1900-an dan awal 2000-an. Gaya Salsa LA menjadi terkenal karena akrobatik dan sandiwaranya. Pengaruh musik yang membentuk kembali Salsa menjadi gaya ini berasal dari tarian Latin ( Argentine Tango , Swing, Latin Hustle, dan Latin Ballroom dance ) dan lebih banyak tarian kontemporer (hip-hop dan jazz).
  • Gaya “Kasino”; Meskipun ditarikan lebih awal, gaya “Kasino” Kuba dipopulerkan di luar pantainya dan dibedakan dari gaya Salsa lainnya hanya selama tahun 1970-an. Dengan namanya yang berasal dari “ruang dansa” Kuba, hari ini, gaya ini dipraktikkan di Amerika, Eropa, dan bahkan Timur Tengah.
  • Kasino bergaya Miami; Imigran Kuba yang menetap di Florida membawa berbagai tarian Latin bersama mereka, dan Salsa adalah salah satu yang paling populer. Gaya Miami menggabungkan gerakan diagonal ke belakang, dan itu membuatnya sangat berbeda untuk menari daripada gaya Salsa lainnya.
  • Gaya Kolombia / Cali; Sementara Salsa ditarikan dengan gaya yang lebih lembut dan ketat di pedesaan Columbia, Salsa menjadi terkenal karena tariannya yang mencolok dan sensual di zona perkotaan. Di Kolombia modern, popularitas Salsa tidak berkurang dengan kedatangan abad ke-21, dengan masih menari di klub malam dan ballroom.
  • Rueda de Casino; Gaya Kuba yang populer ini sering digambarkan sebagai lingkaran dan seperti twister. Awalnya dikembangkan pada 1950-an di Havana, gaya ini berkembang menjadi tarian modern di mana salah satu penari dalam lingkaran memanggil gerakan untuk seluruh kelompok untuk tampil (termasuk langkah-langkah untuk bertukar pasangan dengan cepat selama lagu yang sama).
  • Ballroom Salsa; Dipopulerkan pada akhir abad ke-20 dan awal abad ke-21, ballroom Salsa sering ditarikan oleh pasangan dengan penampilan yang sudah dipersiapkan, yang tahu sebelumnya lagu apa yang akan dimainkan. Jenis tarian ini dipraktikkan oleh para profesional atau oleh pasangan tari yang ingin memamerkan keterampilan Salsa mereka.

Salsa Atau Tango: Tarian Latin Mana Yang Cocok Untuk Anda

Salsa Atau Tango: Tarian Latin Mana Yang Cocok Untuk Anda – Tarian sosial berpasangan telah menikmati peningkatan popularitas yang stabil selama dekade terakhir karena semakin banyak orang mengakui manfaat sosial, fisik, dan emosionalnya. Karena tarian “sentuhan” tidak pernah ketinggalan zaman di Amerika Latin, tarian Latin telah berevolusi untuk menanggapi kepekaan praktisi kontemporer mereka tanpa kehilangan hubungan mendalam mereka dengan warisan sejarah.

Salsa Atau Tango: Tarian Latin Mana Yang Cocok Untuk Anda

lovemusiclovedance – Dua tarian Latin paling populer di seluruh dunia adalah salsa, dengan akar di Karibia Spanyol, dan tango Argentina . Komunitas penari salsa dan tango yang semarak dapat ditemukan di sebagian besar kota besar di dunia yang terglobalisasi saat ini.

Meskipun keduanya menari mengikuti musikdengan lirik Spanyol dan berasal dari ritual pacaran dalam budaya Amerika Latin, pesona mereka yang berbeda menarik bagi kepribadian dan kelompok sosial yang berbeda. Tarian mana yang akan membuat cahaya Anda fantastis? Berikut adalah beberapa wawasan untuk membantu Anda memutuskan.

Apakah Anda seorang ekstrovert atau introvert?

Salsa, yang mencakup periode tarian solo yang disebut “bersinar” di mana setiap pasangan memamerkan gerak kaki paling indahnya, adalah tarian ekstrovert. Itu keras dan menggairahkan, dan sering menuntut ekspresi pribadi melalui tontonan visual.

Tango, sebaliknya, adalah tentang menginternalisasi pengalaman musik seseorang. Ini adalah meditasi yang bergerak, lebih tenang, dan lebih halus. Kemitraan tango lebih tentang mendengarkan satu sama lain daripada bersaing untuk menjadi pusat perhatian.

Apa ide Anda tentang kesenangan?

Salsa adalah tarian pesta. Harapkan ruangan yang penuh dengan orang-orang yang tertawa dan bercanda, melarikan diri dari tekanan kehidupan sehari-hari mereka melalui permainan yang menyenangkan. Penari salsa akan sering berkomentar bahwa milongas (tarian tango) lebih terasa seperti pemakaman daripada pesta karena suasananya yang suram.

Tapi “menyenangkan” belum tentu menjadi tujuan dari tango. Jenis kepuasan tanguero/sebagai pencarian mungkin lebih baik digambarkan sebagai hubungan yang mendalam atau transendensi—berbagi kesepian seseorang dalam pelukan jiwa lain yang juga mengakui rasa sakit dari kondisi manusia—yang diterjemahkan menjadi kesenangan (walaupun jenisnya berbeda) untuk banyak penari tango.

Mana yang membuatmu menggeliat: menatap mata seseorang atau memeluk orang asing?

Tarian tango pada dasarnya adalah pelukan tiga menit. Jika menjadi sangat dekat dengan orang asing (kita berbicara tentang dada-ke-dada dan dekat pipi-ke-pipi) membuat Anda takut, maka Anda mungkin menghindari tango.

Di sisi lain, seorang profesional kesehatan mental mungkin meresepkan tango sebagai sarana untuk menghadapi ketakutan Anda akan keintiman. Terlepas dari kedekatan fisik mereka, penari tango tidak saling menatap mata dan sering kali merasa takut melakukannya. Penari salsa, bagaimanapun, yang mungkin menghindar dari kontak tubuh yang panjang seperti itu, saling menatap selama beberapa menit pada suatu waktu.

Berapa banyak waktu dan uang yang ingin Anda investasikan untuk belajar menari?

Anda bisa keluar menikmati salsa menari setelah hanya beberapa jam instruksi. Tentu saja, studi tambahan dapat meningkatkan keterampilan dan kesenangan Anda secara signifikan, tetapi Anda dapat mengharapkan pengembalian yang cepat dengan investasi waktu yang relatif rendah.

Sebaliknya, tango akan membutuhkan beberapa bulan, jika bukan bertahun-tahun, studi sebelum Anda dapat menikmati tarian malam di milonga . Jika Anda dapat mempertahankan studi dan latihan Anda, kemungkinan besar Anda akan dihadiahi kepuasan yang dalam dan bertahan lama.

Apakah Anda termotivasi oleh tantangan jangka panjang?

Berkali-kali, saya telah mendengar orang-orang yang berbicara banyak bahasa dan telah memperoleh beberapa gelar pascasarjana menyatakan bahwa belajar tango sejauh ini adalah hal yang paling menantang yang pernah mereka lakukan.

Kompleksitas kosa kata dan teknik tango sering menarik orang-orang yang terlalu terdidik, kutu buku, dan mereka yang mulai berdebat tentang berapa banyak sacadas (tiga puluh enam? tujuh puluh dua?) yang mungkin dalam tango. Bahkan kebiasaan sosial menari seluruh tanda (set) dari tiga-empat lagu tango dengan orang yang sama mencerminkan komitmen jangka panjang yang dibutuhkan dalam tango. Komitmen dalam salsa lebih pendek — satu lagu dengan masing-masing pasangan adalah norma.

Apakah Anda ingin memperdalam hubungan Anda dengan komunitas pan-Latino?

Istilah ” salsa ” untuk merujuk pada musik dansa Karibia mendapatkan popularitas pada 1970-an sebagai bagian dari gerakan kebanggaan Latin yang muncul dari New York dan menyebar ke seluruh Amerika Latin. Salsa masih sangat terkait dengan kebanggaan etnis Latin dan memungkinkan banyak orang Latin, terutama mereka yang tinggal jauh dari tanah air mereka, untuk bernegosiasi antara identitas nasional dan pan-Latino. Tango, di sisi lain, sangat berakar pada warisan Argentina dan Uruguaynya sehingga jarang berfungsi sebagai sarana untuk menegaskan identitas etnis Latin yang digeneralisasi.

Apakah Anda mengidentifikasi sebagai Afrika, Afrika-Amerika, atau Hitam?

Salsa didasarkan pada perpaduan musik Afro-Kuba dan Afrika-Amerika, sehingga Afrika memompa sejarahnya dari kedua akar pohon keluarganya. Tarian salsa merayakan estetika Afrika dalam, misalnya, anggota badan yang bengkok, gerakan membumi, segmentasi pinggul dan batang tubuh yang menyenangkan, dan asimetri.

Orang-orang keturunan Afrika di seluruh dunia tertarik pada tarian dan musik salsa, dan menemukan penegasan warisan budaya mereka di komunitasnya. Sebaliknya, sangat sedikit orang kulit hitam yang menari tango (terlepas dari kenyataan bahwa itu juga memiliki akar Afrika), mungkin sebagian karena Argentina memiliki populasi Afro-Argentina yang begitu kecil.

Apakah Anda seorang imigran Eropa yang tinggal di Amerika Serikat?

Tango lahir dari kemurungan dan kerinduan akan tanah air yang hilang yang dialami oleh ribuan imigran Eropa ke Argentina pada awal abad kedua puluh. Tango di abad kedua puluh satu terus menarik sejumlah besar imigran Eropa yang tinggal di pengasingan ke dalam kelompoknya.

Apakah menjadi bagian dari komunitas tari yang dikenal queer itu penting bagi Anda?

Musik salsa populer di klub gay jauh sebelum salsa menjadi aktivitas sosial arus utama, dan industri tari salsa komersial sekarang menerima berbagai ekspresi gender di lantai dansa. Tetapi ada sangat sedikit acara salsa yang aneh secara eksplisit. Tango queer , di sisi lain, terus berkembang sejak festival tango queer pertama di Hamburg, Jerman pada tahun 2000. Banyak kota di seluruh dunia, termasuk Buenos Aires , secara teratur menjadi tuan rumah queer milongas dan mensponsori festival tango queer.

Apakah Anda ingin hobi menari Anda berlipat ganda sebagai latihan Anda?

Jika Anda ingin mendapatkan cardio Anda di lantai dansa, salsa adalah tarian Anda. Mengantisipasi keringat yang dalam, banyak penari membawa baju ganti (atau tiga) untuk menari dan menyimpan handuk di saku belakang mereka untuk menyeka alis yang menetes. Tango membutuhkan kontrol tubuh yang halus dan dapat menjadi atletis pada tingkat tinggi, tetapi Anda tidak akan membakar kalori hampir sebanyak yang Anda lakukan di salsa sosial.

Apakah Anda berusia di atas 35 tahun?

Meskipun Anda dapat menemukan penari dari segala usia menikmati kedua tarian, usia rata-rata penari di sebagian besar acara salsa secara signifikan lebih muda daripada kebanyakan acara tango. Salsa biasanya lebih atletis dan bersemangat, menarik perhatian para pemuda yang memiliki stamina untuk belokan cepat dan gerakan akrobatiknya. Tango sering membutuhkan praktisi yang lebih dewasa untuk menghargai kehalusan dan kehalusannya.

Bagaimana Anda menggambarkan preferensi pakaian formal Anda: elegan atau trendi?

Busana Tango itu elegan—jaket jas, rompi, kemeja berlengan Prancis untuk pria, dan gaun sutra untuk wanita. Tren mode salsa lebih ke arah chic yang lebih muda—jins desainer dan sepatu kulit runcing untuk pria, dan atasan ketat terbuka di bagian perut untuk wanita. Dalam kedua tarian tersebut, wanita menunjukkan banyak kulit, meskipun dalam tango mereka menampilkan punggung dan pergelangan kaki sedangkan pakaian salsa memperhatikan perut dan pinggul.

Apakah Anda memiliki fetish sepatu?

Jika Anda menjawab ya, terutama jika Anda seorang wanita (atau pria yang suka memakai sepatu hak tinggi atau mengagumi wanita dengan sepatu hak tinggi), maka tango adalah tarian Anda. Kebanyakan tangueras memiliki koleksi tango heels dengan berbagai warna, merek, dan bahan yang bisa menyaingi koleksi Imelda Marcos.

Hanya di rak pertama lemari sepatu tango saya: Dalmatian-print Comme Il Fauts dengan ujung merah, kilau emas Neo Tangos , satin karang Soy Portenas , sling back Bandoleras emas dan putih, Mr. Tangos kulit ular (dalam ukuran 6,5 cm yang masuk akal tumit), Sepatu Alma Tango kulit lembut berwarna hijau dan perak , dan sepasang Taconeando datar berwarna pirussandal. Tangueros juga memiliki lusinan pilihan untuk sepatu tango yang mencolok, 2×4 dan Fabio Shoes yang menawarkan beberapa desain favorit untuk pria.

Malbec atau Corona?

Secara umum, penari salsa dan tango mengonsumsi alkohol lebih sedikit daripada penari klub malam. Salsero/as dan tanguero/as tidak hanya perlu menjaga keseimbangan dan koordinasi mereka dengan baik, tetapi mereka mendapatkan kesenangan dari menari itu sendiri, bukan dari obat-obatan. Namun, penari tango dan salsa akan sering bersantai dengan satu atau dua minuman.

Penari salsa menyukai bir karena membantu memuaskan dahaga mereka selama aktivitas fisik yang kuat, dan penari tango menikmati menyeruput Malbec, salah satu ekspor Argentina yang paling sukses.

Masih ragu apakah tango atau salsa adalah tarian yang tepat untuk Anda? Mendaftar untuk kelas di keduanya! Beberapa pecandu tari yang serius membagi waktu mereka antara klub salsa dan milonga, tidak dapat menahan godaan yang ditawarkan setiap tarian.
