From Céline:
What tango means to me
Beyond the pleasure of dance and movement, I think tango is a unique journey towards an in-depth knowledge of yourself and your relationship to others. The search for connection, the sensation of being simultaneously light and grounded, and the ability to express my entire being lie at the heart of my passion for this dance. My teaching is strongly influenced by all these key aspects, and also by the individuals who practice the dance. It seems to me that there are as many tangos as there are tango dancers…
