Books, Shoes ... all about Tango
in stranger's arms
This is an amazing book about Tango - written by a Porteña (that means somebody who is born and grew up in Buenos Aires) who now lives in Portland, OR, Beatriz Dujovne. A must read for everybody who loves Tango. Title: IN STRANGER'S ARMS. It not only gives great research about the background of Tango but also takes you on a journey into the heart of Buenos Aires and into the soul of its inhabitants. It offers deep insides into the heart of Tango. I have learned so much and got so very inspired by this book and it highlights the approach we had in our TTC classes in regards to musicality and dancing not only steps. It is on the bestseller list of Amazon and I highly recommend reading it.
tango shoes i love
There are so many wonderful high heel Tango shoes on the market. I love wearing them at special occasions.
But when I practice or when I switch roles (Follower/Leader) in a less traditional Milonga, I love having flat shoes. These are my preferred ones. They look super cool and are very comfortable.
If you consider to ORDER them take one size smaller than your normal size as they widen and will fit your foot like a glove. If they don't fit, the company allows you to return the shoes to change the size.
