After eleven years living, dancing, teaching tango, and writing in Buenos Aires, I came home to L.A. in 2014, where I'm reconstructing my life.

Dance, Don't Think!




...To dance thinking is the
least advisable way, it restricts to the maximum every creative
impulse. Dance is emotion, senses, instinct.


--Pablo Veron, in El Tangauta, December 2008.

Or as Ruben always says in lessons, Dance! Don't think!

So true. It was a challenge for me to stop thinking, to disconnect during my first months of tango. More I was thinking more I was messing up, more I was getting tense, it was a endless vicious circle.

And even now, sometime, it comes back but the difference is I recognize it and this acknowledgement allows me to relax.
