Tango Fire!

“Tango is the Everest of social dance. Impossible. Demanding. Intricate. And therefore irresistible.”

~ Margaret Putnam

two Tango Fire dancers

The world-renowned Tango Fire Company of Buenos Aires will be performing in Manila! They had an exclusive preview last week in Nuvo, Greenbelt 2. We were given a superquick tango lesson. The instructor told me to stop looking at my feet but because the music was too loud, I did not hear him. I hope he has already forgiven me for stepping on his foot.

Miss Margie Moran with Kassy and guests

Miss Universe 1973, Ms. Margie Moran (now the president of Ballet Philippines) told us that one should listen to the music of his heart (or something like that) to dance the tango. If I consider this, I should be dancing hiphop. :p

But seriously, tango is an extremely interesting dance. Very sexy. Very passionate. It’s like if you can’t give your 100% passion to the dance, then don’t dance.

Kassy, me, Kevin, Ram, Anika, and Joko

  1. How I wish I can afford. Hahahaha!

  2. Hah, if I were to listen to the music of my heart, I’d be dancing to 80s pop & new wave. Pwede kayang pan-Tango ang Never Gonna Give You Up ni Rick Astley?

    I remember watching an episode of Samantha Brown where she was trying to learn tango. She could not keep a straight face because her instructor had such a passionate look on his face! 🙂

    I hope your instructor was Argentinian din. Otherwise, boring. Haha.

    • im sure pwedeng gawing tango ang never gonna give you up! hihihih. the argentinian dancers were there but the one who assisted me was filipino. naku, kung argentinian yung kasayaw ko baka naging catatonic na lang ako. :p
