Marcelos ord om Tango:
What is Tango
Tango is a vibrant and playful dance between two people. It has very rich potential for expression, improvisation and connection and is danced in both modern and traditional styles. It is often described as a passionate dance, because of the close connection partners can have, the character of the music, and also relating to some of the dance’s history.
At the heart of tango (Argentine tango) is the desire to listen to, understand and converse with the person you’re dancing with, through this unique language of dance. So tango can be many things for different people. Almost any type of music that can be walked to can be tangoed to, which means just about anyone can do it!
In tango there is a ’leader’ and ’follower’. Through the embrace, the leader offers invitations to the follower for where and how to step. The follower decides in what way they will accept the leader’s invitations. Both leader and follower try to maintain harmony and connection through the embrace, and with the music, and so the dance is born.
”Tango is sharing a moment of intimacy and understanding with another person”
”It’s truly magic, how two people can really move as one, so connected with each other and the music – that’s tango”
