What is tango for us?
The meaning of ‘tango’ in Latin means ‘I touch.” I touch my partner in embrace. I touch him with my fingers, with my cheek in close embrace, with my chest, with my heart.
Great Carlos Gavito said: “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”. For us this is the description, this is the essence, that’s why exactly all people can dance tango, young, adults, not Argentinian, women and men, everybody can feel. So it means everybody can dance tango.
