Those tango moments.....
....Yes, there is that 'tango moment' that every tanguero and tanguera strives for, that 'aha!' moment when the planets line up and you achieve nirvana, in total harmony with your partner and the music. Once you have one, you're hooked. These moments defy literal description - how do you capture a feeling? How do you describe bliss?
But there is also that other kind of 'moment', the little interaction or vignette that comes with our tango experience. It can make us laugh out loud, it can touch us deeply, make us feel mildly uncomfortable or even excruciatingly embarrassed. We remember it, talk about it, and often laugh about it later, and it helps define the very human experience that is tango. We talk about them with our friends and are reassured to find that they too have had their share of such 'moments'.
Here is a place where we can share those little sidebars to the dance. All names will be changed to protect the innocent, and the not-so-innocent!
