There’s a whole lot of dancing going on these days – you can Dance with the Stars, maybe you even Think You Can Dance. Or you just want to be gliding across the floor in the arms of your beloved. Of all the dances that there are, I think the Tango is the sexiest and the sultriest and the most romantic. Dancing the tango with someone you love is the ultimate in romance and beauty and the epitome of why we are all attracted to today’s popular ballroom dance. The tango, coming to us straight from steamy Argentina, is a seductive form of dance that saturates the hearts and bodies not only of those couples dancing, but also of everyone watching. The tango is like sex – sweaty, lustful, promiscuous exchanges between two partners with eyes only for one another.
The Tango is all about sex and romance. It’s all about giving your partner your undivided attention with your eyes and your body. You assure your dance partner that she or he is the most important person to you. On the dance floor this is played out by two dancers staring directly into one another’s eyes nose-to-nose. While you are dancing together, you listen to each other’s bodies and adjust your movements to theirs, deliberately and slowly keeping your two bodies moving together and acting as not two, but one.
The tango is an intimate dance with intricate steps – your legs rub together as you walk as one in close embrace, each body leaning into the other with chests pressed together and sweat intermingling. Tango is like a bedroom conversation between two partners, two lovers.
As one tango master, Naomi Hotta, says, “Warning – Tango contains highly addictive ingredients, such as pain, pleasure, passion, excitement, connection, freedom, torment, bliss. In seven out of ten cases, it takes over a person’s life.”
