Tango Words

Expressing feelings

I recently bought a double DVD set on ‘Tango Club Style’ by Dolores de Amo and Daniel Lapadula. At one point Dolores de Amo made a comment (plea?) that accords very much with my own feelings about dance in general, and tango in particular (not that I always manage to live up to it… but the intentions are there!). She said:

“If we’re dancing with one of those rare men who give the woman time to express her feelings, to answer the questions he poses with his body, and if he’s interested in the woman’s answer, then he’ll give the woman time to express her feelings with her feet, her body, her eyes, in many different ways.”
