The Iceberg Theory

I remembering reading, a while ago, that Ernest Hemingway believed that seven-eighths of a story should remain hidden beneath the surface. He referred to this as the Iceberg Theory: the emotional strength of any story should be felt and not necessarily seen. I feel that this is the same for when you dance tango; the emotional strength of your dance should be felt and not necessarily seen.
