Tango Quotes

When you undertake to dance the tango you become ready to move beyond life’s fears. You acquire a way to celebrate life’s romance. You dance of dreams: of passion, tension and release, frustration, conflict, separation from home and loved ones, and of resolution. You dance of your destiny in the making.


On women developing in the Tango“…”You must certainly follow the rules of tango. Follow the technique you learn and follow the man’s lead, but try to move like yourself. The form of movement should be absolutely personal with it’s own dynamics and its own expression. It is also important for a woman learning tango to learn to perceive the man- to be able to follow him in every way: in each pause, in each breathe. Let yourself be led, and let yourself be filled with the music to be able to interpret it.”

- Guillermina Quiroga

“A good Tango dancer is someone who has rhythm and who has a good musical ear. He also has to respect the woman to know what to do at the right time with the right partner. He adapts himself to the woman . He makes her feel that she is the best dancer. He dances for her.If he can execute complicated figures gracefully he is good. But as long as he can dance in harmony with his partner then he is
an excellent dancer.”

- Pablo Veron

“When someone begins he can be dazzled by things that are external; the things of Tango are internal… A dancer arrives at the roots of the Tango when he falls in love…”

- Eduardo Arquimba

“A good dancer is one who listens to the music…We dance the music not the steps. Anyone who aspires to dance never thinks about what he is going to do. What he cares about is that he follows the music. You see, we are painters. We paint the music with our feet..”

- Carlos Gavito

When you dance with a partner you are close and the dance is very suggestive, but it is not personal…“Close is what the music inspire you to become. The embrace looks personal, but what we are actually embracing is the music.”

- Carlos Gavito

“I think those who say that you can’t tango if you are not Argentine are mistaken. Tango was an immigrant music... so it does
not have a nationality.
It’s only passport is feeling..”

- Carlos Gavito


“we dance tango because we have secrets.”

- Marilyn Cole Lownes


“the wealth of a tango couple resides in that they both contribute to the choreographic creation. The improvision , the emotion that each feels which is materialized in steps.. It is ideal when both partners contribute what they feel to the music.”

- Guillermia Quiroga
