“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
