Tango has always been my favourite dance. I experienced (and very much enjoyed) my first one-to-one Tango class last Summer while on holiday. I had to really concentrate and do as I was told, but towards the end of the lesson, I was able to dance around the ballroom with my partner performing a few ‘Ochos’ and ‘Ganchos’. It’s quintessentially ‘Latino’; a dynamic form of self-expression, but I find it is also more elegant and sort of ‘classic’ and has greater emotional depth than many of the other dance forms such as ‘Salsa’ and ‘Mambo.’ It is also about connecting with a partner and creating a close and sensitive connection. I love the passion behind the dance structure and stylized sensual moves that it demands.
