WHO: Event Organiser, Social Dancer, Teacher
ROLE: Tanguera Leader & Follower
LOCATION: United Kingdom
DANCING SINCE: 1920
Tango is first and foremost the music.
As a social forum, I hope for tango to be welcoming and friendly but at the same time wholly committed to learning and developing. Whenever we are together, we create tango in the spirit of the moment. There are many potential benefits – we can think about not only what we have to gain, but also what we have to offer.
For me, tango as a physical practice is about creating, directing and sharing energy; learning a body language which allows us to respond to the music, our partner, the other dancers in the room.
In teaching, my focus is on the deep over the broad, the simple over the complex, the felt over the shown. Close, connected, musical.
