How it all started
It is said that Argentine tango does not have nationality and can be danced by anyone. After all, It was created by the mix of cultures from different corners of the world. And I also think that Argentine tango will find its way to you at the right time.
I remember the life performance of Argentine Tango. The couples were deeply immersed in themselves walking on the parquet floor. I have to admit my disappointment in contrast to the performances seen on TV and YouTube.
This was the beginning of our journey towards this wonderful dance. Although we continued dancing Swing, tango enchanted us so much that we decided to move and focus on this dance only. And all of this happened mostly because our trainer Ondrej Buransky from Tango Club Kosice and Tango Club Vranov nad Toplou. We would not be dancing Argentine Tango without him. His passion and enthusiasm bound us to tango forever.
Tango is not just a dance. Argentine tango is a whole culture from dance, music, film to the people themselves from different corners of the world. Every next training session was more interesting. More and more we get to know the magic of tango.
After the advanced class ended, it was our turn. It was very difficult to step onto the dance floor and continue where we left during our previous training. It was even more difficult as the advanced dancers stood at the bar and began to chat and at the same time they scanned us. Even Stevko Hric was there, milonguero, known by most of the Argentine Tango dancers in Slovakia. He stood at the bar and was checking if we’re suitable “candidates” to join the community as Stevko is one of these people who is trying to build the tango community in Kosice.
Tango is our life journey, which we decided to go. It is a drug that fills you up and helps you understand yourself.
