About Tango Lessons

“…You can croon to the moon by yourself
You can laugh like a loon by yourself
Spend the lot, go to pot on your own
There are lots of thing you can do alone.
But it takes two to tango, two to tango
Two to really get the feeling of romance
Let’s do the tango, do the tango
Do the dance of love”
(Al Hoffman and Dick Manning, 1952)

During a few months I visited Tango Dancing club in Farnham to document their lessons. I found there were always more women than men attended, so the first ones had to find their ways to dance: with each other, or waiting when their turn will be with male partner, or practicing by herself.
