This is a unique book in its field. In Tango Awareness Mauricio Castro shares some of the main philosophies of Tango Discovery method. Using real-life examples and quite simple language to communicate his visions, Mauricio touches such profound sides of tango as communication, body awareness, sensitivity, balance, posture. The author also shares his views on tango history (Tango Tradition vs. Conservatism) and tango evolution. There is a great chapter on Tango technique, roles in tango, smart proactive following and smart proactive leading (luring into movement).
I would highly recommend this book to any dancer, beginner or advanced. It will deepen your understanding of body movement, psychological and physical relationship between dancers, musicality and technique.

|Mauricio has a very healthy take on the whole "what is real tango" nonsense. His position is that nobody is an authority to say what is or what is not tango. Otherwise this book is more about tango pholisophy rather than about teaching method. Worth reading if you don't think that tango always was and will forever be like in its golden age. I think everyone should invent his/her own tango style and write a book about it.|
