Tango is a truth drug. It lays bare your problems and your complexes, but also the strengths you hide from others so as not to vex them.

It shows what a couple can be for each other, how they can listen to each other.

People who only want to listen to themselves will hate tango.

Dance is unspoken communication and can be even more profound than language.

The simple act of standing shares a glimpse of what we have to give, what we exude to define our presence, what we let go of to be receptive.

The tango embrace is a representation of who we are and what we communicate in every moment.

When you dance with a partner you are close and the dance is very suggestive, but it is not personal…

Close is what the music inspires you to become.

The embrace looks personal, but what we are actually embracing is the music.

Carlos Gavito

A good dancer you recognize by the way he walks, not by acrobatic figures.

Javier: When a man walks nicely, the woman dies in his embrace.
Stella: When a man walks badly, the woman wants to die.

    Great quotes. May I comment on two of these. Faith’s observation is deep and insightful. A tribute to the revelations of body language. Pablo’s brevity on the Walk of a good dancer is brilliant.
