Why does the tango imitate life like no other dance knows how? No matter how many times you watch it, you will feel different emotions depending on your life at the moment. It pulls together happiness, sadness, anger, violence, regret, and fans the flames of your desire into a smoldering restrainted mess of hot coals waiting to catch fire.
To dance it is to know your own darkness. It allows you to discover what it will take to pull you from the depths of your own personal hell. Dancing tango tears at your soul becuase you cannot hide your soul from the dance. Tango reveals your truth and forces you to decide whether you will look at it in the face and dance or you will turn and spin away never to return.
Life, like tango, magically lets the full range of human experience flow from one move to the next. Moments strung together become a dance we learn to savor more as we look back and can see how all the last steps have led to the next steps.
To tango. To life. To the next step.
