I want to know if you appreciate/value/care-about Tango.

I want your answer to be not in words but in your acts. When I observe you in class, before giving you corrections I will ask you: are you satisfy with the way you are doing it (your walk, your posture, your technique, etc.)? If you don’t know what to answer, then I will ask you: do you like the way I dance? 

If you still do not have an answer, I will tell you that you need to make up your mind, make more research, find out.

What is dancing and why do we feel so at home when dancing?

Civilization has required the silencing of our bodies. Where, otherwise, would the indeterminable complexity of our anatomy would fit? A great split was initiated: the spirit manifested in words and our bodies went on to construct civilization. Words are easy to control: “Don’t say that!”. On the other hand, how does one prohibit certain moves? The entire body was proscribed from expression, there, where the influence of those who negate themselves could reach. Condemned to build, the slaved bodies danced in their creation of steel and concrete, through the machines they invented, with the technology they deliver to us. 

Now, we have accepted their invitation…

Dancing is the highest wisdom.

It is a philosophy of acceptance, not from the resignation of weakness, but from a strength developed in yourself by means of studying and training with courage and love for life.

You will dance only if you appreciate the value of dancing.

Bailando con Miranda at Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires in San Francisco, California.

Dancing with Miranda in her birthday

There is a profound wisdom in the ability to dance Tango.

A wisdom that you acquire through training, by working on the way you hold your body, the way you move, paying precise attention to detail, developing a sense of awareness and careful respect in dealings with others at milongas, learning to passionately love the music that milongueros dance to, opening yourself up to music that expertly advises you on how to move in every beat.

This wisdom does not stop there. Milongueras and milongueros, who have been dancing Tango for a long time, who have been developing a familiarity with other milongueros, most of them older, listening to them, taking their advice, learning from them, developing a wisdom, a knowledge, which is at the very least hard, if not impossible, and would ultimately not make sense to explain in words.

Dancing embraced by a milonguera or milonguero is where Tango begins.

It is in the dance of a milonguera or milonguero where you will find her or his wisdom. To learn to dance Tango, which is to learn all about Tango, is an unspeakable enterprise, in which words act mainly as signs that point you in the direction of what you need to see or feel.

Happy birthday, Miranda!!!
