For the dancers who truly dance Argentine tango (not this ballroom version of unhappy and bitter dancers), this is an insult to the dance form as it is danced in Argentina both socially and on the stage. As it is danced in the ballroom style, these dancers are impressive but so far from my experience and love of the both the music and dance from South America.

This video was deeply moving for me.  I immediately wrote this for the Argentine Tango community, showing that  people in the street can naturally hug better than many who try to hug while dancing.

Dancing is at it's best "synful."  Synchronized movements ("together-time"), symphony ("together-sounds"), and synsomatic expression ("together-bodies").  It all adds up to a lot of syn that is good for your soul.   #healingdance   #argentinetango   #tangotherapy  
Tango culture at its center and at its best is a community of harmonizing elements: The whole dance floor is synchronized in movements to symphonic* (harmonized) sounds of musical notes. And tandem dancers,  synsomatic in the...

Take vitamin T -- every day with water.  Wine is even better.
This is not a drug. This is Vitamin T that you savor on your tongue, like no other vitamin. Vitamin T is a complex vitamin, like "B complex."  Vitamin B complex includes 8 elements.  Vitamin T includes many more, but the b...

The quick translation:  "There she is getting married... I am poor.  I couldn't give her the riches that she needed, only my tenderness."  (So don't play this at your tango wedding!)

La Marcha Nupcial

Venancio Clausio – Armando Tagini (1932)

Te vi salir del templo con tu flamante esposo,
envuelta en los acordes de la Marcha Nupcial.
Un resplandor de dicha te iluminaba el rostro,
el porte de una reina lucías al andar…
En mi rededor, las gentes comentaban tu belleza.
Yo sentía mi herido pecho estremecerse de emoción…
Me daba vueltas la cabeza.
¡Y era la angustia del corazón!

¡Dulce tiempo que estás en la distancia!
¡Cuántas ilusiones! ¡Cuántos juramentos!
Tus palabras, tus risas, tu fragancia.
¡Castillos de esperanza barridos por el viento!
Yo era pobre… soñador.. ebrio de luna…
(No pude ofrecerte mas bien que mi ternura)
Vos echaste a una balanza tu hermosura
y el dinero de otro pesó más.

Drama real es este que en verso rememoro
al oír los compases de la Marcha Nupcial,
mientras Cupido llora sobre un bolsón de oro,
un alma ve esfumarse su fe sentimental.

DJ's please play this at a musicologist party and not a milonga.  It is not the most danceable because of the lack of power.  I love it, but as a musician and not a dancer.

Please tell me where she is dancing, and I will come to fix that problem very quickly. I would say: "Dear, you need to have different shoes than clogs. Take them off! I will take my shoes off and dance a tanda."

Why make tango overly complicated!  Foreign language teachers do this and it ruins our confidence.  That is what tango teacher do too often too.

Fabio and Jennifer treat everyone with respect and provide excellent instruction. They have the nicest wood dance floor in the entire Washington, D.C. area.

This is where residents of Strasbourg, France get married, whether richer or poorer, in health or in sickness--all have a beautiful palace in which they must get married in order to be legally wed. The Square (Place) Broglie is also the home of the city Opera House. I love Europe and this city!
