“Love is TANGO and TANGO is love! Yes, it is a dance, yet so much more than just any dance. It is an ongoing conversation between two souls, two hearts and two bodies. It is a sacred dance we enter in with one another, where both 'masculine' and 'feminine' feel fully expressed and honored” - Ilona Glinarsky

What is the Argentine Tango?
The tango is a dance of connection from the heart in which the embrace is central to the merging of two bodies in a non-verbal conversation. Unlike ballroom dancing, it is not a dance of set sequences. It is a walking dance of improvised lead and follow that requires absolute focus and cooperation between dancers.
Why the tango is good for your relationship?
Tango is so much more than a dance. Through the unique improvisation of the dance we develop a heightened sensitivity to the other while we work to find our common balance. It provides with opportunities of greater awareness of ourselves and our partner, to practice mindfulness, generosity, acceptance and a stronger sensual connection.
