The Meaning Of Tango

From the backstreets of Buenos Aires to Parisian high society, this is the extraordinary story of the dance that captivated the world — a tale of politics and passion, immigration and romance. The Tango was the cornerstone of Argentine culture, and has lasted for more than a hundred years, popular today in America, Japan and Europe. 'The Meaning of Tango' traces the roots of this captivating dance, from it's birth in the poverty stricken Buenos Aires, the craze of the early 20th century, right up until it's revival today, thanks to shows such as Strictly Come Dancing. This book offers history, knowledge, teachings and in-sights which makes it valuable for beginners, yet its in-depth analysis makes it essential for experienced dancers. It is an elegant and cohesive critique of the fascinating tale of the Tango, which not only documents its culture and politics, but is also technically useful.

    The Tango became an expression of a fundamental human need:
    The Hunger of the Soul for Contact with Another Soul

    Tango is a contagion. The best way to pick it up is through close contact with a heavily infected body.
    Veljko Vujasinovićцитує5 років тому
    The richness and variety of Tango is one of its most extraordinary characteristics. But the reason that I could dance with any of these people, even when they led steps that I had never seen before, was that fundamentally they were all speaking the same language. Some chose to speak it simply, others created complex poetry with our feet, but once I had learned the language I could understand them all
