Our Tango World vol.1:
Learning & Community 256 Pages, book
Join Terpsichoral Tangoaddict, aka Iona Italia, on a sharply observed journey through the world of Buenos Aires tango. Along the way we get to meet Terpsi’s partners in crime: The Slow Semite, The Leprechaun, and Pretty Salony Boy; her teachers, the ever-patient Master of Calm, El Chino and others; her friends Foxy, The Sylph and Mr Hugman, as well as occasional dance partners Flirty Boy and The Turk.
This is, however, no travel memoir, but a guide to our own tango world. This first volume focusses on the learning experience and concludes with a guide to creating strong and healthy tango communities.
Terpsi believes passionately in learning and practice as the route not just to mastery of the dance, but to an ever-deepening world of pleasure and enjoyment. With her guidance, perhaps we can leave the Land of the Long-Term Beginners and gradually make our way towards the sunnier uplands of tango Elysium.
