In Bennie Bartel’s words: “Tango, more than a dance”

“I will offer a taste of the Argentine Tango with, at its heart, the close embrace, improvisation, musicality, and the language and communication with and through the body.

“I want to let you experience something of its essence that each one of us carries somewhere inside.

“Such as its strong and expressive form that plays with dynamics, a clarity of direction, tension, and what leading and following mean within this joint venture.

“The form always coming forth from our inner life, asking from us to heighten our sensing and listening. The inner life being our life, making tango a metaphor for life, where we become one body with four legs.

“At its base ‘walking’, something we all do and know in our very own way since we were one year old. A walking that can turn into the art of walking and its manifold of expressions.

“I welcome people to can sign up as an individual attendee, there is no need yet for partner division of leader and follower.”
