A Evaristo Carriego, Edelia Gonzalez, DancePhiladelphia Argentine Tango. Since we were celebrating Edelia’s birthday, she requested the song, a famous Argentine Tango dance with it’s own song.
DancePhiladelphia Argentine Tango is hosting an art show by artist Charles Cushing, an art exhibit dedicated to his trip to Beunos Aires last year. You can see the art in the background of this video. We’re working on a new video montage of the exhibit but this single shot video of the Argentine Tango Dance, A Evaristo Carriego, is divine.
This video was taken during a Friday Night Milonga, a regular dance party dedicated to Argentine Tango dancers. The people who attend the Milonga at DancePhiladelphia are so nice, the social environment is sophisticated friendly and the music so infectious that it was hard to hold the camera steady. Thank you to all the dancers at DancePhiladelphia Argentine Tango for the enthusiast performances, especially Edelia Gonzalez and the male dancers who vied for her attention. I thought Charles Cushing was elegant and energetic when he swept his partner up in his arms. But each partner was sincere and handsomely respectful of a sensual dance experience.
“Tango, as danced in Buenos Aires, the cosmopolitan capital of Argentina, is an elegant, sensual and intensely connected dance experience. It’s been a worldwide favorite for decades, and today is riding a new wave of popularity across the generations. We’ll show you its simplicity – and its complexity. You may have seen it on Broadway, but you can do it too.” – DancePhiladelphia
