This Really Happened

After a very long night of tango at Salon Canning, Sharlene and I were enjoying a bit of a sleep-in, Looking over at my lady, I noticed she was moving about in her sleep, almost like she was dancing.

When she finally opened her eyes, I just had to ask "what is going on?"

"Last night was the best tango we ever had" she replied.

Hmm" says I, "are you telling me that you had a tango orgasm or something?"

Without hesitation, she simply replied, "yes".

Go figure!

More About The Tango Connection

"as we dance, we find each other "

This quote from our " Purpose page " is really the essence of why we dance tango


"You don't need to dance close to be connected but... "

Parts of our dance are in open embrace and parts are in close embrace. Each has it's place. Now let me say that a close embrace is special, very special. Admitedly, it took us some time to be comfortable dancing this close. I as a leader, felt confined and restricted

Open embrace tango certainly offers more opportunity to dance a greater range of dance moves or steps. Close embrace tango offers the opportunity to simply "be quiet"
