"I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because ‘romantic’ doesn’t mean ‘sugary.’ It’s dark and tormented — the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can’t attain." - Catherine Breillat http://youtu.be/S983INsbeRE

"The first time I saw the slide I clapped my hands with glee - not unlike a child in a candy shop. Alas, I forgot that I was in public and earned a number of stares from my neighbors in the coffee shop." http://youtu.be/2RniqNMkUPw
About a month ago, I had a transformative week in Montreal where I collaborated with a wonderful tango couple named "Marko & Maja" and we talked tango for a week...in classes, over meals.....in the park! For a while, I had had a bunch of ideas floating in my head about the dance, the movement, and the interpretation of tango. I had hit a point where my strict training in Villa Urquiza salon, my milonguero "estilo del centro" adopted from the milongas, and my own tango ideas were colliding. When I spoke with Marko and Maja, it was like finding people who had been thinking similar things and with their thoughts added to mine, I was able to make "breakthroughs". I realized that I had to let go of some of that strict base training in order to allow the new things (which were already trying to come out) to finally appear. To adopt a new technique, and adjust one's style might sound risky right before heading out on tour again but, in this case, it feels right. It was time.
Thank you, guys!
