Beginning Tango in the Fall Season!
~Martha Grahan, Dance is one of the most natural expressions of emotion that we have as humans and to try to grade it in terms of "good " or "bad" is to undermine the whole
Modern dancer or choreographer Martha Grahan was one of the most talented and famous dancers of the 20th century, and even acknowledged that it doesn't matter if you can dance well--it only matters that you let go of your inhibitions and experience the joy of moving to the music.
It's a lesson that can be applied to all areas of life. Fear of imperfection should
never cause us to miss out on life's wonders.
"Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that is why it is called the present." ~ Bil Keane
Terri's Haiku: "Tango is passion set to music" ~ Terri
The music goes in my ears, is filtered through my heart, and comes out through my feet."
- El Flaco Dany Garcia
