Jeder für sich, der Tango für beide
Looking back at my sketch I realize how well it illustrates the importance of the center axis for the individual stability of each dancer. You can clearly see how her hip moves far out to the left side, her body describing a sinuous line, but still head and supporting leg are on one line.
The same for him: his balance point is directly above the ball of the foot he is standing on. Both dancers are in a very stable position although they are standing on one foot only. Each confidently standing on their own and at the same time turned towards the partner, thereby able to move in perfect harmony. Isn't this a wonderful allegory for a healthy partnership?
