We've already said that : the Toupie is not a waltz, a Parisian musette tango does not resemble a ballroom tango, a paso-doble in the racatti style doesn't look like a paso doble taught in the schools, a java is not only danced with the hands on the lady's buttocks (a pity, I know...), etc.
let's avoid too much mixing with other dances (especially with the
Argentine Tango, as is sometimes seen).
it is rich, very rich, too rich for the Musette which
almost doesn't exist any more and
which would end up by being totally swamped, in the the way that little
civilisations have been absorbed by big ones...
Let's try to talk about the "danced Musette", to make it known again in France and abroad, to revive the atmosphere with "themed dance evenings"...
Anyway, Salsa dancers weren't fooled - they knew how to rediscover the Cuban salsa, then the Puerto-Rican salsa and now they are moving it towards new styles such as the L.A. or the New York style...
In the same way, Lindy dancers didn't make mistakes either - they first re-launched the "Savoy" style, then rediscovered the "Hollywood Style" and now enrich their dance patterns with movements brought in by new Lindy dancers coming from the Hip-hop culture (...and it's pretty "cool"...)
Argentine Tango dancers - they initially sought to
imitate dancers in major international revues, then returned to a more
traditional, ballroom style before moving on towards a Tango which now
evolves in new directions every day, thanks to the "new blood"
and their contributions !
In our opinion, the survival and evolution of the Musette is therefore :
this is a long way off for the Musette...
