It wasn’t traditional tango . . . .I am not exactly sure how to categorize the music that started that tanda . . . blues? swing? jazz . . . .?  Whatever it was, it was groovy all right, and got my feet to tappin . . . .and for some mysterious reason we just plunged-no holds barred- deeply into the groove of it—improvizing every move –sometimes together-touching–sometimes far apart but–well . . . always together, perfectly in sync.  It was pure, unadulterated movement magic . . .punctuated  here and there by actual tango moves! Catching glimpses of faces along the side of the floor: “A” smiles broadly, shakes his head in affirmation as if to say: “You go girl!”  Later, as “M” danced by—smiling broadly almost laughing he looks at me and exclaims: “You were awesome!”   So, what was that that happened?. . . . . And, can I even hope to capture it in words?  It was as if a door suddenly and without warning, swung wide open and my dancing friend and I hurried thru to dance there: wildly yet controlled, freely yet with hard-earned technique . . . . .and all with abandon and with unbridled joy!  It was just simply: Magic!


About tangobunny

Pastor Bunny went on sabbatical leave to Argentina July 28-November 4, 2010, funded by a pastoral renewal grant from the Lily Foundation. It was her second visit to AR. Since then she's been back three more times and toured the country. She loves the Argentine people as much as the tango and calls Argentina her other home.
