The mysterious thing that takes them to the milongas to dance until exhaustion, stopping time and keeping them together. They know that every person it is unique, and choosing the correct person to embrace.....the one with whom you can feel at ease in their armes to enjoy a tango, is a decision that takes much more than knowing a few dancing steps. They dance together, because they find in the other person something that makes them feel complete. Their embrace neither tries to seduce the spectator, no to invite the public into their dance. Their embrace, is theirs. It is unique and authentic.... They love tango.... because of how it makes them both feel together, anywhere in this big world. The depth of its songs, in which every story is projected in their minds like a drama movie; and the characters, the milonueros who tell us fables about the traditions of when they were their age..... They love tango because it nurtures their souls. Their best wish is that time meets them..... at some place...... embraced..... dancing a tango ON FACE BOOK, GO TO www.facebook.com/events.327065484029253 or www.maxinadia.com best go to You tube and search for them

The Argentine Tango is a dance of Passion, grace, speed and intricate steps. It is intensely individualistic and improvisational. The music is derived from black African rhythms, the melodies of southern Italy, Cuba and the Andalusian Tango. The theme of tango is passion, emotion and longing. It is reflected in the somber strains of the bandoneon, an accordion like instrument that breathes and signs with the pining of a lost love. Born around 1880 in the River Plate Region, Tango is an exclusively urban phenomenon whos major development took place in Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. Initially only performed by amateurs, the tango was danced solely among men, who perfected their steps to impress the prostitutes at underground brothels. Women were included at the turn of the century, and the aristocracy embraced the dance in the late 1910s. 100 years since its birth, the tango is both the classic and modern form is again an integral part of Argentine culture, reclaimed by an older generation and discovered by the young.
