I have updated the website with the new edition of the book
One of my knowledgeable friends is so kind to edit it. It is the fourth edition, and it will contain typo and language fixes and clearer explanations. The work is in progress.
We are discussing the book material after my classes in Palo Alto (after 9:45pm on Monday) and stay way after the building is closed. I would be happy to illustrate it with my own humble body.
The new edition will contain a new large chapter on ochos and my old article "26 ways to make a pivot". Also I am investigating, if it is worth to make a Kindle edition. Anyone who already has bought the book, will be entitled to the discount price to cover expences, but again, it is still work in progress.

Here is my Facebook page with the example demo dances:

Just realized that I did not include in the book the material about presence of golden section in Tango rhythm and dance.. Sorry, I guess there was a reason, I can  not remember what. Fear of being too much? May be. Golden section is there, it is a hypothesis that it actually affects a dancer, makes tango so attractive. Shortly, Tango rhythm is the rhythm of golden section. What tango rhythm is, it is in the book. It is not mentioned how it is related to golden section. More on it - later. Happy dancing !
