Beautiful Tango Dance in Black and White

I took these photographs of this amazing dance performance during an event of Traditional Milonga night, one of highlight programs during Tango in Paradise 2o19 in Bali, last November.

It was my first encounter with Tango Dance - I know nothing about it and still don’t get a better understanding after reading few articles. The only impression is I am fascinated with what I saw. It’s a dance, and more than a dance at the same time. I was blown by the movement, concentration, and chemistry among those dancers. It feels like that they are in a ‘trance’ present in which those individuals blend the mind (technical aspects of dance) and the emotion and flow with the rhythm of music and the rhythm of body movements.

Amid my own battle of capturing these moments or simply sit and enjoy that beautiful dance, I managed to capture a glimpse of the performance, making a recollection of my fascination to Tango Dance.

The Argentine tango’s essence regards life: it’s about the connections between men and women. Graciela Gonzales, a tango teacher in Buenos Aires, calls it, ‘the history of love — in three minutes.’ -- from The Culture Trip

"Because the tango embrace is healing and soothing the pain in real life. Milonga is a haven offering escape from daily troubles and boredom.

In tango you find solidarity, people from all walks of life gather on the floor for the same goal. In tango you find bonding that can last for years; that overcome differences in races, nationalities and languages.

You become more patient as you know tango techniques cannot be achieved in one day, and it’s the same for any other goals in life." -- Jeanie Tsui in Tango is not a dance
