Sensuality and geometry

“…tango is unique among dances; and that is the contrast between its sensuality and the precision of its geometry. Sensuality and geometry are not often paired in aesthetics. The creative power of this pair of opposites, the vitality generated by their interaction, is seen in tango as nowhere else. And they point directly to the fundamental pair of opposites that are always at the secret heart of tango; man and woman.”
