The tango is about much, much more than just dance steps and technique. It is the ideal form of expression for a plethora of feelings, ranging from passion and refined eroticism to sorrow and nostalgia. Yet the tango is more than simply the expression of sizzling emotions – it is also a strongly social activity. In an age marked by its fundamental need for communication, tango not only deepens the relationship with one’s partner, it also helps the dancer to better understand him or herself and to make true contact with the other. This lavishly illustrated book is based on the idea that everyone can learn to tango and to incorporate the dance in his or her life.
