There is too much emphasis on the “Connection”. The main thing is the FEEL of your other, so that you move like a 4-legged animal. You cannot feel any movement from an inanimate object. Secondly, as far as musicality is concerned, again the emphasis is on expressing the FEEL of the music, not just copying the pulse, rhythm (resulting in “Mikey Mousing”). This can be done especially if the music is not known beforehand because we are then forced to IMPROVISE, the essence of the tango.
