Why MUSICALITY is so important?
Often people get attracted to TANGO first by what they SEE. Then, to be able to reproduce the BEAUTY they had seen, they need to realize that it is not rooted in the GEOMETRY of the figures. Furthermore, the MUSIC that is danced shapes the proportions of this Geometry.
If the initial energy that makes us dance comes from our PASSION, the music is what channels and shapes that energy.
I was born in Argentina. Through my family and the community that saw my upbringing, I have been intimately involved with the culture of Tango all my life, and have been an Argentine Tango dance performer, choreographer and instructor for over 30 years. I profoundly love Tango dancing, music, and culture, particularly that of the Golden Era. I am a milonguero.
