Quickstart to Tango Reviews
"Quickstart To Tango" is an easy to read, informative, and entertaining `How To' book for any Tango aficionado. Jeff Allen gives an excellent, and easy to understand presentation of the basic fundamentals required to dance both the Argentine and American style Tango. This book provides the beginner dancer with a clear understanding of the proper technique needed to successfully execute this fun, sexy, and eccentric dance! The basics of the Tango, "the Walks", are described in wonderful detail and have suggested practice exercises that are both useful and enjoyable! For those who are more adventurous or more `educated' in dance, Mr. Allen provides additional choreography with very detailed descriptions. What I found particularly helpful is that throughout the step descriptions Mr. Allen clearly points out `common errors' that occur and gives the remedy for each. This book has a lot to offer to dancers of all skill levels and contains excellent information regarding dance technique in general. The reader will return to this wonderful resource over and over again, I highly recommend you pick up a copy and `Tango On'!
At least once a week since 1998 we open up one of the Quickstart series books and find solutions, techniques, and additional choreography that either amplify or add to what we have learned in many classes. We have taken both group and private lessons. When we mention some of the examples that we've read my teachers are generally very interested or in agreement. Evidently Jeff Allen is very well known in the dance community throughout the United States and his opinions and teaching methods are highly respected. We were not at all surprised to find that he writes a regular column in "Dancing USA" magazine called "The Dance Lesson."
