Tango Pasion

Have I mentioned how much I love music and dance? Well, I'm the sort of person that gets goose bumps if I hear music I like or see people dancing like I would love to be able to dance...

I love dancing myself, and I have been exposed to african and latin dancing from my teens. I don't go out dancing as much as I used to, but when I do, you won't see me not dancing for long :) On the latin side, I not only went out to latin clubs, but I also did lessons (to get hubby involved, and it worked, because he loved it) in salsa, bachata and merengue. But, the one type of dance I would have loved to have learnt but never actually did (oh, but I will one day) is Tango. So, until the day comes when I finally decide to enrol in Tango classes, I will be content to just watch the professionals do it whenever I get an opportunity.

And an opportunity did come along a couple of weeks ago, when we went to see Tango Pasion, who in the UK tour, were nice enough to stop by our local theatre (Tunbridge Wells) and do their thing.

I really enjoyed it (got the goose bumps... then again it doesn't take much to give me goose bumps...), but having seen Tango Fire before, I expected a bit more... I thought Tango Fire had more... well, fire. Tango Passion were good, but I expected more of that "throwing the lady up in the air/across the stage", that I saw in Tango Fire. But, overall it was a good show, especially if you have no other references to compare to. I'm not sure if they're still touring in the UK, but you should be able to find that information on their site.
