The 19th Step Development Day Three, Patterns, Shapes and Tango

"Musically, the tango is not important; its only importance is what we give it. This reflection is correct, but perhaps applies to everything."
"The tango can be debated, and we have debates over it, but it still guards, as does all that is truthful a secret"
Jorge Luis Borges, A History of Tango.

Today Marcus our mathmatician had his first ever tango lesson. Using the shape of the circle the dancers and Marcus improvised moves drawing circles on the floor inspired by tango.

Marcus drew the diagram of the dance moves he and Rose had developed. Inside the circle the 6 triangles make a hexagon, the shape of the rooms in Borges story the Library of Babel.
