Tango in the time of Coronavirus

Tango, like any form of art, is not always about happiness. It is about sadness too, emotions and unfulfilled desires. That is not to say it can’t be fun and it doesn’t mean you have to suffer but if we look past the technical aspect of the dance, there is always a form of reflection, […]

Thank you very much to all of you have already completed our survey. We had almost 50 responses and It has helped to give us a better picture of how people are feeling about returning to class, but also an idea of more practical things like what % of you have a dance partner etc. We will extend the survey just a few more days, so if you haven’t already filled it in, it really only takes a couple of minutes 🙂

To help us sort out the results, please:
– Fill in the survey
– Leave your name and which location you attend classes in the comments box
– Leave your email address for follow up (we promise not to share your details or to inundate your inbox with emails!)

We will collate the responses and get back to you all with the results from the survey and any new information.

I hope they won’t mind us doing this publicly but we just wanted to say a huge thank you to Andy Jobin and Lin Jobin. Firstly for all their commitment and love in their contribution to Argentine Tango in the UK. They ran classes and organised an amazing number of events which always had a very special attention to detail. Secondly as friends who we got to know and who valued the tango we shared. Andy painted this beautiful picture of us which was the loveliest thought and which we appreciate immensely. Your events and classes will be missed but we look forward to seeing you on a dance floor soon! ❤️ Luis Alberto Rodriguez Predieri and Elizabeth Knock

Tango y Nada Mas

Tango y Nada Mas update – we have been working with other Tango schools, teachers and organisers to discuss how our Tango activities might be able to start again. Below is a statement from all of us as a group as an up-date on where we are at the moment. For Tango y Nada Mas specifically, we do not currently have a date for re-opening. However, we are now starting discussions with our venue on what is possible and when and we will give you an up-date as soon as is possible.

We can’t wait to see you all again! Elizabeth and Luis x

Tango y Nada Mas

Hola a todos! It has been a very long time since we were all able to meet and dance. For many months we have been without Tango but mostly lucky with the weather, which maybe helped with our spirits and the things we miss. However, sometimes it rains… literally and metaphorically and our feelings and sense of loss or nostalgia heightens. Today it rains and we would like to share some beautiful poetry with you. We couldn’t find an English translation but many of you will understand some if not all and the you tube recording is original (Tunon reciting) and its beautiful to listen to even if you don’t understand it all!

If any of you find a translation, please do share 🙂

LLUVIA

Entonces comprendimos que la lluvia también era hermosa.
Unas veces cae mansamente y uno piensa en los cementerios abandonados.
Otras veces cae con furia, y uno piensa en los maremotos que se han
tragado tantas espléndidas islas de extraños nombres.
De cualquier manera la lluvia es saludable y triste.
De cualquier manera sus tambores acunan nuestras noches y la lectura
tranquila corre a su lado por los canales del sueño.
Tú venías hacia mí y los otros seres pasaban:
No habían despertado todavía al amor.
No sabían nada de nosotros.
De nuestro secreto.
Ignoraban la intimidad de nuestros abrazos voluptuosos, la ternura de
nuestra fatiga.
Acaso los rostros amigos, las fotografías, los paisajes que hemos visto juntos,
tantos gestos que hemos entrevisto o sospechado, los ademanes y las
palabras de ellos, todo, todo ha desaparecido y estamos solos bajo la
lluvia, solos en nuestro compartido, en nuestro apretado destino, en
nuestra posible muerte única, en nuestra posible resurrección.
Te quiero con toda la ternura de la lluvia.
Te quiero con toda la furia de la lluvia.
Te quiero con todos los violines de la lluvia.
Aún tenemos fuerzas para subir la callejuela empinada. Recién estamos
descubriendo los puentes y las casas, las ventanas y las luces, los barcos
y los horizontes.
Tú estás arriba, suntuosa y bíblica, pero tan humana, increíble, pero, tan real,
numerosa, pero tan mía.
Yo te veo hasta en la sombra imprecisa del sueño.
Oh, visitante.
Ya es seguro que ningún desvío nos separará.
Iguales luces señaleras nos atraen hacia la compartida vida, hacia el destino
único.
Ambos nos ayudaremos para subir la callejuela empinada.
Ni en nuestra carne ni en nuestro espíritu nunca pasaremos la línea del otoño.
Porque la intensidad de nuestro amor es tan grande, tan poderosa, que no nos
daremos cuenta cuando todo haya muerto, cuando tú y yo seamos
sombras, y todavía estemos pegados, juntos, subiendo siempre la
callejuela sin fin de una pasión irremediable.
Oh, visitante.
Estoy lleno de tu vida y de tu muerte.
Estoy tocado de tu destino.
Al extremo de que nada te pertenece sino yo.
Al extremo de que nada me pertenece sino tú.
Sin embargo yo quería hablar de la lluvia, igual, pero distinta, ya al caer sobre
los jardines, ya al deslizarse por los muros, ya al reflejar sobre el asfalto
las súbitas, las fugitivas luces rojas de los automóviles, ya al inundar los
barrios de nuestra solidaridad y de nuestra esperanza, los humildes
barrios de los trabajadores.
La lluvia es bella y triste y acaso nuestro amor sea bello y triste y acaso esa
tristeza sea una manera sutil de la alegría. Oh, íntima, recóndita alegría.
Estoy tocado de tu destino.
Oh, lluvia. Oh, generosa.

Abrazos, Luis Alberto Rodriguez Predieri & Elizabeth Knock

Lovely memories from a vals class in Tango Cotswold. We worked on melodic musical phrasing, going in and out of cross system fluidly in the beautiful vals, Barreras de Amor – Firpo. Thank you Helen Malbon for the memory x
