Are you an adventurous dancer? Interested in doing something a little different for your wedding dance? Perhaps you should consider the tango as your first dance song. Here’s how one couple did it for their wedding:
You may remember Al Pacino dancing the tango to the same song in the movie “Scent of a Woman:”
Another alumni of the Godfather movies, Robert Duval, starred in a movie based on the tango, called “Assassination Tango.” His real-life wife, Luciana Pedraza, an Argentina native, co-starred and dances with him in the scene below:
A writer named Stephen Brown said this about the tango:
“In tango, heaven is found through the simple gift of grace. That comes from getting out on the dance floor with the person that happens to be right for the moment, opening one’s heart and falling in love again.”
La Nuit Blanche describes the dance as a life-changing experience:
“When the tango took hold of me, it was as if I had found the ultimate lover. No single experience can be as fascinating as this dance. No single work of art is so replete with all the joy and sorrow and longing and tragi-comedy of the human race, as is a tango danced between a man and a woman. It is labyrinthine, yet so simple. Each lasts just a few moments, yet it is eternal.”
The dance is sensual and exotic with origins in Argentina.
Does the tango work as a first dance song? Absolutely, if you take time to learn, rehearse, and polish the dance. Not everyone is up to the challenge. Are you?
If yes, here is a beginner’s video:
Whatever you decide, DJ Brian Anderson will play your first dance song on shockingly clear high end equipment while bathing the dance floor with sensual decor lighting just right for the song.
