A good dancer is one who listens to the music. We dance the music not the steps. Anyone who aspires to dance never thinks about what he is going to do. What he cares about is that he follows the music. You see, we are painters. We paint the music with our feet. – Carlos Gavito
I still can’t believe that some pseudocritics continue to accuse me of having murdered tango. They have it backward. They should look at me as the saviour of tango. I performed plastic surgery on it. – Astor Piazzolla
The secret of tango is in this moment of improvisation that happens between step and step. It is to make the impossible thing possible: to dance silence. – Carlos Gavito
For me, tango was always for the ear rather than the feet. -Astor Piazzolla
I think those who say that you can’t tango if you are not Argentine are mistaken. Tango was an immigrant music… so it does not have a nationality. It’s only passport is feeling.- Carlos Gavito
Tango is about feeling and sensitivity, otherwise you are just doing gymnastics. You can do all the steps but it has to have the feeling and sensitivity of authentic tango. – Carlos Gavito
