Tango definitions

This blog is, of course, about Argentine tango (and matters I see as related).

“American tango is when a couple is on their honeymoon — it’s romantic and sexy with both on their best behaviour. Argentine tango is the whole of the relationship — with all the passion, pain, sorrow, joy, anger, humour, of real life. International tango is when the couple can’t stand each other and stay together just for the sake of the children.” Barbara Garvey
