Polly's Tango Talk

Describing Tango/It’s Personal

It’s Personal

One day a student asked, 

Why does tango make me nervous when no other dance does?

I said, Because it comes from within, it is yours and that makes it

Personal.

 

After answering him, I realized that after 22 years, I finally

understood and could explain why tango affects us 

in so many ways on so many levels.

Tango is improvised,

Uniquely ours, and that makes it

Personal.

We communicate in silent intimacy

and that makes it

Personal.

We share our embrace, our energy, our inner self

and that makes it

Personal.

We are responsible to and dependent upon

Our partner and that makes it

Personal.

We connect with our self through our partner

And that makes it

Personal.

Our connections accompany us beyond the floor,

and that makes it

Personal.

Tango challenges our body and mind, touches our heart,

Lifts our spirit, and that makes it

Personal.

Tango inspires us to grow, learn, share,

And when we dance as one,

It’s deeply personal.
