BODY EXPRESSION

Being able to express ourselves through our body by dancing Tango is something magical; the leader proposes with an absolutely personal movement and the follower accepts, thus generating a dialogue without words. In tango we can express ourselves through the body in a creative way because social Tango lacks choreography.
In the three minutes that a Tango lasts we will express our most intimate unconscious, conscious and in some cases even primitive.

FEELING, RHYTHM & MELODY

We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once. And we should call every truth false which was not accompanied by at least one laugh.

Friedrich Nietzsche

In Argentine social tango, the beat and the melody are danced, but the most important thing is that the movement comes from the heart.
