The Gender Expression in Tango
Unlike in America where gender expression is considered politically
incorrect, in Argentina it is a cultural symbol, which is evident in many aspects

Women's Feminine Beauty in Tango
The fact that more women dance tango than men may be
attributed in part to their beauty. I don't think it's coincidental that in tango the percentage

Meeting in the Middle
For some people, life is good. For others, it is not. We

Tango and Individualism
We all assume
certain roles in life. Husband and wife, father and mother, president and vice
president, center forward and linebacker, leader and follower, etc., are all
