Lesson3:  探戈   Tango(阿根廷)

原文:

MMan        W:Woman

 

W: I wish you could find another hobby. Fishing is so boring! I want to find something we can do together.

MWell, honey, you are going to love me even more! I have an idea... what about dance classes?

W: Dance classes! How fabulous! But you said "real men don't dance".

MMaybe I've changed my mind. Now, let's decide which dance class to take.

W: There's ballroom dancing, disco, tap, jazz ... and tango. Tango sounds interesting, isn't it from Argentina?

MYes, I guessed you'd choose that one so I did some research on the Internet.

W: You know me too well. I took ballet when I was little but have never had the chance to dance in the past few years, because I thought you didn't enjoy it.

MDid you know that Argentina tango was influenced by something called Tango Habenera?

W: I read that the knee flexing of the dance originated from African people living in Argentina. They danced with their knees bent to show off their skill.

MIt seems you are a bit of an expert. Have you been reading about it too?

W: Well, you know I've wanted to take dance class for ages. Anyway, the tango they teach today didn't come about until the late 1930s, so it's probably very different to the original style.

MThe modern style is usually danced with flowers and a kind of musical instrument, those things you hold in one hand, they make a clicking sound.

W: You mean castanets. That sounds  fun, my friend brought me some back from Spain when I was a child. Maybe I still have them somewhere. Did you know there are three different kinds of tango today? Which one do they teach?

MThe form known for stage, sometimes is referred as "for export", is aimed at English speaking people. So I suppose they teach one.

MI think tango is becoming more popular nowadays, some of these classes are already fully booked.

W: The Golden Age of Tango took place in the late 1940s and early 1950s,  I guess it's having a revival!

MWhat's the phone number? We should hurry up and book the classes.



译文:

M:男人        W:女人

 

W我希望你还有其他的爱好。钓鱼太没意思了!英雄我想找点我们能一起做的事情。

M这样吧,亲爱的, 你会更爱我的!我有个主意 ...上个舞蹈班怎么样?

W舞蹈班? 太好了!可是你说过 "真正的男人不跳舞."

M也许我改变主意了。现在咱们决定一下上哪个舞蹈班.

W有交际舞、迪斯科舞、踢踏舞、爵士舞…还有探戈。探戈听起来很有趣,是从阿根廷传过来的吗?

M是的。我猜你会选这个课,所以我上网查了一下。

W你对我很了解嘛。我小时候学过芭蕾舞,可是过去几年一直就没有机会跳,因为我以为你不喜欢呢。

M你知道阿根廷的探戈受过一种叫什么探戈·哈巴涅拉舞的影响吗?

W我从书上看到过,舞蹈中膝盖弯曲动作源于生活在阿根廷的非洲人。他们跳舞时弯曲膝盖以显示自己的舞技。

M你有点象个专家。你也一直看这方面的书吗?

W是的,你知道我这些年来我也总想上舞蹈班。不管怎么样,他们现在教的探戈是20世纪30年代末才出现的,所以很可能跟原始风格大不一样。

M现代风格通常是跳舞时拿着一些花,一只手拿着一种会发出咔嗒声的乐器。

W你是说响板吧。听起来很有意思。小时候,有个朋友从西班牙给我带回来一些响板。我应该还有,也许放在什么地方了。你知道如今有3种不同的探戈吗?他们要教哪一种?

M舞台上常见的那种,有时被称作"出口货",是针对讲英语国家的人们,所以我想他们会教这一种。

M我觉得现在探戈越来越受欢迎了,有些班已经全部报满了。

W探戈的黄金时代是在20世纪40年代末和50年代初,我想现在是复兴时期。

M电话号码是多少?我们应该赶快预定课程。
