Tango love

In the most recent Tango Noticias (the site seems dead now 1/2011), the newsletter for the Chicago Tango community, there is an interview with Geraldine Rojas and Ezequiel Paludi. When they broke up with their respective dance partners of many years a little more than two years ago, there was quite a big hooha at the time. Now, we finally get a refreshing glimpse of some of the behind-the-scene events from the two main protagonists.

I think, at the end of the day, dancers (Tango teachers or not) are human beings like the rest of us. It is very easy to confuse Tango-god-like status of some teachers and our selfish desire to see beautiful creations on the dancefloor by various couples with the real needs of these people. After reading their take on the events, I am very glad that both of them followed their hearts and found happiness, off and on the dance floor.

    taipei friend dino’s website ( has some nice footage of their dances. he introduced me to them some earlier this year. i like their dancing better than when he was with sabrina, i think it’s because of the couple connect.

    Hi Markov,

    Yes, I agree with you that they are dancing better and better as a couple: Ezequiel in particular seems to be more gentle these days. I also believe it’s because of the special bond they now share that they can gradually mould each other’s style into something unique to themselves.
