Shall we dance

There is this famous quote about Tango from the movie Shall we dance, "is the vertical expression of a horizontal wish. You have to hold her, like the skin on her thigh is your reason for living. Let her go, like your heart's being ripped from your chest. Throw her back, like you're going to have your way with her right here on the dance floor. And then finish, like she's ruined you for life.

Don't say anything, and don't think. And don't move unless you feel it."

Tango is not a dance. It is a feeling that is danced. The tango is an embrace in movement. A man and a woman enter a dialogue through their bodies, guided by music, which has an almost somber quality of yearning, of a passion that can never be fulfilled, of a sweet sadness. Two strangers become one for the duration of the dance. Two opposites come together briefly to create the fantasy of a harmonious whole. When you dance tango, you must give everything. If you can't do that, don't dance.
You do not choose tango. Tango chooses you.
El tango te espera (tango waits for you).

My other Tango partner. We laugh so much on the dance floor. He talks constantly. ( I know we are not supposed to do that but we chat and laugh). No one would have ever seen this mood of Tango. :)
