In the spring of 2004 I founded together with Alina Dumitrescu –
La Morocha, the first Argentinean tango club
in Romania, named El Tango.
Our wish and plan were to convince the people about the beauty of
tango and to bring the Bucharest into the worldwide tango community.
We narrated and instructed about tango, organized tango events,
encouraged the bands for to play tango music, invited professional
tango dancers and teachers for to sustain tango workshops.
From the summer of 2006, our ways have split. La Morocha has other
plans with tango and I try to continue, at a smaller level, the
We have mentioned below the principal events that influenced us
to bring the tango in our life forever.
We discovered the Argentine tango with Gigi and Adina Raducan and
we took private classes and later regular classes when they start
to teach other people. Thanks to them we entered into tango worlds.
Buenos Aires, 2004
Three years after the first lessons of Argentine Tango, we travelled
to Buenos Aires for one month. Our professor and friend Alfredo
Garcia is the one who helped us discover
the secrets of tango. Almost every day, during group classes, individual
lessons or milongas, he led our steps, minds and hearts, making
us embrace living in a tango rhythm from that moment on.
We visited as many tango schools and clubs as possible in Buenos
Aires, and met many tango instructors, dancers and milongueros.
We took classes with:
Susana Miller & Maria Plazaola, Ana Maria Schapira, Eduardo
Saucedo & Marisa Quiroga, Julio Balmaceda & Corina de la
Rosa, Chicho Frumboli & Eugenia Parrilla, Fabian Salas &
Carolina del Rivero, Eduardo Cappussi & Mariana Flores, Facundo
& Kely Posadas, Sergio Natario & Alejandra Arrue, Sebastian
Arce & Mariana Montes, Roberto Herrera & Natacha Poberaj
Our missing of Buenos Aires we filled by the visit in Romania for
one month of our maestro Alfredo Garcia.
Buenos Aires, 2006
We stayed six weeks, for the second
one in Buenos Aires, for to dance and study in respect of improving
our technique of dance and teaching tango.
Another direction of high interest was the study the tango choreography
because we plat to stage a tango show.
The tango maestros that have inspired us this year are: Alfredo
Garcia - our mentor, Gabriel Glagovsky,
Chicho Frumboli, Tete & Silvia, Julio Balmaceda & Corina
de la Rosa, Pablo Villarraza & Dana Frígoli, Claudia Códega
& Esteban Moreno, Caudio Gonzalez & Melina Brufman, Gloria
& Eduardo Arquimbau.
The great discover for this year was that the tango is in continuum
and visible evolution, how we seen between two years when we visited
Buenos Aires. The tango is in continuum movement, is alive, expression
of his great history and tumultuous present.
We did not list the maestros that we meet
as trophies but because we are extremely happy and grateful for
the opportunity and pleasure of meeting them. We would like thank
them again by passing on to you the love and passion with which
they embraced us and encouraged us to dance. They are our role-models
and they helped us to find our way. Now the time has come for us
to give to all of you, tango lovers, our love for this dance.
Vamos a bailar!
El tango es la musica, la poesia,
