On the occasion of the birth of Astor Pantaleon Piazzolla every year in March

Each year, in March, we celebrate the birth of Astor Pantaleón Piazzolla with various programs – dance, literature, concerts, screenings, performances, dance workshops, practices and milongas in a specific way. The programs are open to dancers and non dancers at local, regional, national and international level.

Argentine tango is a musical genre, its dance, poetry and social phenomenon.

21:21 – 01:01 Practical milonga (between practica and milonga) – in less extraction, cortina (every 30 minutes) we’ll hear Piazzolline’s words. You’ll be surprised. You know he tried to escape the Argentine tango 😉 . He was subjected to violence. From his idea he hasn’t given up.

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
