Very Tango


Very Tango was created by Eran Braverman to be one of the premier sites for tango information. Meticulous care has gone into every one of the articles contained therein, often with hundreds of cross-reference checks against other sources to ensure completeness and accuracy. This website, whose focus is the immense beauty, sensuality and richness of tango, is indeed a huge labor of love!

An immense thank you must go to every one of our readers who have read and enjoyed Very Tango, particularly those who have written to express some very kind words of encouragement. Interestingly, what began as an unknown website getting almost no hits, has now grown to 15,000 visitors a month (at Dec 2011) and growing.

In the words of one of our readers:
In the short time I have been learning about tango, I have checked every site on the internet that I can find, and this site is in a class by itself. I cannot imagine the many hundreds of hours it must have taken to create and to maintain this exceptional library of information. It has been less than a year since I started my journey to learn Argentine tango, and I can say from experience that Naomi Hotta's quote, "...In seven out of ten cases it takes over a person's life", has a lot of truth. All the other dances that I have enjoyed learning are fun to do and very alluring, but Argentine tango truly gets into the blood and the heart and the mind, and becomes part of the fabric of a person's life. This is a lifelong journey I am looking forward to.

From Carole McCurdy: After that tanda, I found that every man I danced with that evening had something beautiful to offer, no matter their postural eccentricites or limitations of technique. In fact, their eccentricities and limitations were something to be respected and accorded a value, something that added rich flavor to the dance. If my partner is stiff as a board, well, it means that we begin the tanda by doing the 'stiff as a board' tango, which can offer some very creative moments of shared comedy, playing close to the edge of being off-balance. Whee-ha-ha. Maybe by the end of the tanda our dance will have expanded into something more soft and flexible and grounded, maybe not. The cortina has its own great value, after all.
I left the milonga that night feeling thrilled and humbled. How sorely I had underestimated these 'bad dancers,' how foolishly I had cheated myself out of the deeper pleasures of connecting in the dance. It wan't somebody else's fat ego getting in the way of dancing, it was my own.
Astrid responds: It works both ways. The great advantage (and burden) that women have in dancing the tango is that it enables them to experience a hundred different worlds, by dancing with different men and, if they are sensitive and intuitive enough, for a while becoming that man's creation to certain extent, for better or for worse...
It also works the other way round. One of the best dancers has told me that he dances in a different way with every woman, because she inspires him to do certain moves.
And the total is then always more than just the sum of its parts. Wish that in real life we also had some music to guide us to follow each other's steps...
