Surfing Tango USA

It’s good to get an “Alex Fix” at the Wednesday practice, and we ladies who study with this master teacher all agree. Of course, one is not always so lucky, but this last Wednesday: score! And it was a bit more than anticipated. First off, Pugliese is playing and he knows I am waiting for a chance to dance, but he’s off to dance with my friend, so I accept there will be no Pugli for me today. Yet, ever the gentleman, he was good to his word: “I need to dance a song with her but I’ll find you.” And he did–and my favorite band leader was still playing! After the fist song Alex is smiling and I am smiling and he’s saying something like . . . .”That was like . . .surfing: you are just riding this wave together and it’s high and low and you never know just where it’s going but you are in perfect sinc with it and the music.” YES! “Yes,” I say, that’s exactly it!.” And gleefully we jump onto the next wave and ride away across the dance floor, in the room, but not totally; somewhere out there-Tango surfing USA!

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.
