Tango Words

To dance tango, you must listen


The tango is a feeling that is danced. That’s why it is not choreographed, though it can have sequences, like all feelings. You can dance love, rage, happiness, pleasure, every mood. The tango is not a dance to demonstrate ability but rather an interpretation of feeling. It is not just moving your feet and posturing. The tango is Argentine, but it belongs to all those who understand its feelings and its codes.

“Guys, to dance tango, you must listen to the heart of the woman.”

written in November 1998 by Cacho Dante, milonguero de Buenos Aires.
