Isabella Szymonowicz & Alicia Pons… part 3

Alicia & Isabella in Buenos Aires 2011

1.  Please tell us what you mean when you say “tango is life”.

Alicia:  Tango holds different states of mind, at times happy, at times not.  Like life we have connections that are more strong with some people and weaker with others.  We need to have dialogues, because in our heart a TANGO ALWAYS PLAYS.

2. Can you explain the main difference between milongas in Buenos Aires and North America?

Alicia:  In Buenos Aires you BREATHE  tango in the milongas,  the ENERGY is created by  each couple and at times all TOGETHER.  It almost looks like the floor  moves.  Each person dances with their partner creating a row of precious pearls and each dance opens the door to an emotion  within ourselves that we express to our partner.

3.  What do you think is missing in the milongas in North America?

Alicia:  The sentiment.  They are  too pre-occupied with steps done well and not for what the couple feels.

4.  How important do you think it is for students to spend time practising on their own?

Alicia:  It is important to practise to feel secure on the dancefloor.  But, I always say that “tango is produced in the moment”.  At times one practises a lot and then when dancing forgets everything.

5.  You are a wonderful milonguera, why do you think so many people love to dance with you?

Alicia:  Thank you.   I think I put all of my being into each dance, I express how I feel and let go so that I can FLY!

6.  What can we do to keep this dance alive?

Alicia:  Keep dancing and always learn more.

      Yes, it was a wonderful time. It was actually very exciting then because we were both at Milongeando 2011.

    Good idea to practice first then just dance!
