Tango (Argentine Tango) is a passionate representation of the intersection of lives. It is dignified, disciplined and speaks, without words, to the soul. When you burn life, Tango is the dance of the flames.
Some people say Tango is just an excuse to have close contact with another person, ritualised flirting. By way of argument I could not say this is untrue, but if this is the only view of Tango, it is blind to the essence. It is the view of someone who stands with their back to the fireplace in a darkened room: they can feel its heat and see the dance of light and shadow on the walls, but they do not see the flame.
