From the artist's website: Alex has been dancing Argentine Tango since 1997 and teaching worldwide since 1998, including performances in Buenos Aires. He has run his all-Argentine tango studio, Tango Berretin, in Portland, Oregon since 2001 and has also studied the bandoneon since 2001 currently directing his sextet.

In the previous chapter, we talked about embellishing. You stop the leader. You do your thing.
Here, we'll do the same thing. Only, this time, ladies, you'll stop the leader, and you can, actually, take steps. And then, do your thing.
Which is a lot harder. Now, I get to be the king. So, I'm going to lead, and he's going to follow.
D: She says, "I'm going to lead", as I'm pushing her further away from the camera.
N: Right. Ha-ha.
D: And then, here, I plant her.
N: Oh, no one is going to know when he stopped me.
D: She knows.
N: I know.
So, you can't see my back arm, but I just did this.
So, you can see, for the camera, I just did, "Hold", and she did.
So, she held. And now, I'm going to hold her down, as I slide away.
And, if you see, my right arm, I'm still tight, and pushing down. And then, I can...
N: That's a lot of stuff.
D: And then, here, in my upper body, I ease up.
N: And then, it's mine again.
D: Now, some comments. What I just did,
N: That was fun.
It was fun, but not tasteful. You wouldn't exactly want to do that. I'm just exaggerating to make the point.
But, if you hear it in the music, you might, sort of, break away; change; change; come back.
Right, you probably wouldn't spend half of the song doing stuff like that.
N: Like somebody, who shall be nameless.
D: Yeah, someone, who shall be nameless.
So, make sure, when you break away: pressure down, to stop them.
And, even as you go away, you'll see, there's the pressure. And then, as I break away, I keep the same pressure, saying, "Stay down".
And then, do your thing. And then, once you come back, you'll... If you see, I have the stay down pressure, and then, it eases up.
N: I really felt it, when he gave himself back to me.
D: And then, we're back.
And, as in the previous chapter, careful who you do it with.
