My love for ‘Tango’…

I always feel intrigued by Tango’s movement and its music. Somehow the music sounds so defying. The female’s facial expression is so supercilious. The whole dance is so elegant! –And I started to fall in love…

My love for Tango wasn’t quite there until recently when I and hubby started to take private lessons from my Salsa dance’s teacher. Step by step she took us into her arms and led us into the dance floor. Baby steps were made until some movements were memorized and learned. Then all of the sudden the surge of excitement arose from my heart to my body. As the music flows… It takes my body with it and starts to move eloquently. As if it couldn’t resist the temptation that generated by Tango’s music. As if the Tango has its magnetic pulls that I can not resist. Without a choice, I submit wholeheartedly –And I started to fall in love helplessly…

Each time, when my hubby took my hands and gently led me into the dance floor. He would take charge and took me to wherever directions he wanted me to be. I would follow obediently as of this body has its own mind. I can no longer control it. If my mind decided to go against, the whole movement halted awkwardly and the music would abandon us and move on. But I won’t and nor could I. I felt like my whole feeling and body have been trapped inside a web, a Tango web and I can no longer escape. –And I started to fall in love deeper …

Little did I know that Tango dance has taught this free spirit of mine how to follow a lead and go where my loved one wants me to. I am always a freethinker person and go wherever I want to go and do whatever I want to do. Hardly anyone could stop me … Hardly anyone could prevent me until I met Tango dance where I would powerlessly surrender without any fight. This kind of feeling is so foreign to me yet familiar. It reminded me when I first fell in love with hubby. Couldn’t stay away from him, wanting to see and hear his voices. Wanting to be with him every seconds of my life. –And my love for Tango has gone deeper than one could imagine …

A lot of time in our lives, we find ourselves finding someone or something that we love and no matter how hard we try to stay away, we just can't. The love grows stronger each time and before we know it the love has taken controlled over us. Being in love is such a great feeling to have and sometimes it seems so unreal and hard to describe in words.  "We all want to fall in love. Why? Because that experience makes us feel completely alive. Where every sense is heightened, every emotion is magnified, our everyday reality is shattered and we are flying into the heavens. It may only last a moment, and hour, an afternoon. But that doesn't diminish its value. Because we are left with memories that we treasure for the rest of our lives." – This is exactly how I am feeling at this moment ...

This part of my journey with Tango has sparked a new excitement in my life that I feel like I am falling in love all over again. As you walk back into your own journey of life …I hope you would find yourself falling in love all over again and this time with something or that very someone in your life that may ignite your heart all over again ...

  1. Oh LOVE this Angela! Tango is such a neat dance and I haven't really had the chance to fall in love with it yet, but I love your description and your relationship deepening with your husband!

    1. I love the closeness feeling when I danced in his arms. Perhaps when your kids are bit older, you can find something that may lead you to fall in love and perhaps it would be Tango :-)

  2. Glad you found this joy and the closeness it brings you and your husband!!

    I have wanted to take some Latin dance lessons for some time, now. Perhaps now is the time.

    1. Go for it! Definitely one of the best experience that I have :-)

  3. Beautiful post... There is something so magical about the tango.... I am glad that it keeps you and your hubby so close....
