I love the music. Piazzola, Gardel, Tanghetto, Gotan Project. I play the music, even, on accordion. But I never danced the tango, because no one ever taught me how and I never had the opportunity. And I never traveled to Argentina.

But, tonight, all that changed. In four hours, with gentle, expert partners, I've begun to learn. I had no idea there was a tango underground culture here. I can do it. You close your eyes, you surrender, you wear high heels.

Yes, I'm into this. This blessed evening is definitely not the end of dancing the tango for me.
