I am looking forard to seeing you next Saturday night 15 December for a dance with the Cape Town Tango Ensemble. We will be lucky to be listening to a slightly different version of the ensemble with a saxophonist. Bring your friends for a free beginners lesson and take advantage of this beautful event which will be supporting Nazareth House in Cape Town.
Please note that Tango Rhapsody on Tuesday will be shifted a half hour forward to start at 6:30 pm.
To Embrace - Open or Closed?
There is no open or closed embrace. There is only tango
There are many opinions about the embrace in the tango. What shape should it take? How strong should it be? Should it be open or closed? I do believe that the embrace is the most fundamental element of the tango, along with a desire to appreciate the music that we are dancing to. "Embracar, Escuchar, Bailar" Embrace, listen, dance". This is the path to the blissful experience that the tango offers.
I have experienced dancing in different embraces and the embrace I choose to dance is this one: See more
