The Soul of the Tango

Every dance has its unique flavor. As time goes by and you continue to study and practice and dance it, tango will become easier and more automatic. You will be better able to experience el alma del tango - the soul of the tango.

This is a blend of several essences - the flow of creativity that comes from the unusual freedom in tango to improvise, the agility and precision nurtured by tango style, the almost operatic intensity of the best tango music and musicians, and the emotional closeness to your partners.

This feeling, more than mastery of dance mechanics, is what makes an Argentine tango dancer. And when you begin to feel it you will be one too.
