WHAT IS TANGO?
"Tango" ... a dance, a drum, a place of dance.
Creole Buenos Aires idiom derived from the classical Ki-Kongo language
"Tango is self-transformation."
Sally Somer, dance historian
"Thanks to the art of tango, we as human beings connect not only with our inner self but also with the inner self of another human being."
Sebastian Arce, founder of Tango Renaissance International
"The tango is man and woman in search of each other. It is the search for an embrace ... the coupling of two people defenseless against the world and powerless to change things."
Juan Carlos Copes, internationally acclaimed tango dancer and choreographer
"Tango is a mystical secret that transcends into another realm of consciousness ...a world of beauty, elegance, peace and harmony where we are all connected and humbled."
Laurie Vega, local dancer, choreographer and teacher
