Eleanora is, in my opinion, one of the greatest female dancers in tango nowadays, with enticing performances, astonishing technic and ground breaking moves. Beauty, technic, sentiment and sassiness all-in-one! Just love it!

Highlights:
2:10 – Eleanora does an amazing air born planeo, with such an amazing grace that the lady in the back can’t help but start clapping in a big extasy! 🙂

2:26 – This one just kills me! Eleanora, in a side step, slides on her heel and then brakes with the front part of her foot, just in perfect sync with music (following the violins, I believe). She does it so smoothly that it appears that most of the audience doesn’t even capture it.



Highlights:
01:34 – Beautiful sequence of sacada over the woman, cambio de peso of the woman and sacada of the woman to the man
01:44 – Humongous, beautiful and sensual planeo of the woman
02:13 – Frenetic sequence of giros in the variation, with three consecutive moves of enrosque > cambio de peso > sacada by the man
02:34 – I just love this twisted movement where the two become entangled in each other! So simple, so beautiful and it must feel great 🙂
