I was asked by Top Santé magazine if I would like to tell the story of how I came to be a tango dancer.
The feature appears in this month’s edition – with a two pages chronicling my own personal tango journey.
Everyone has a tango story. How they came to discover tango. The reasons they started dancing. And yours might only just have begun … or about to happen!
I always ask people how they came to dance tango. For many, it is so much more than a hobby. And if it started as a hobby – it soon turns into something more important to them.
The story in Top Santé tells how I inadvertently changed the course of my life when I walked into a tango class in the late 1990’s. When I saw how beautiful the dance and the music was, I had an epiphany.
It tells how I gave up my job in the City to immerse myself in tango for just a few months … and then didn’t come home for four years!
Luckily it all worked out well for me as not only did I find what I feel is my calling in life but I also met my partner – in tango and in life – David.
And the person most excited about being in the magazine – my five-year old daughter. She’s telling all her friends that she is famous!
So that’s my story. And now someone just needs to approach David for the story of how he became first a ballet, then a tango dancer. A story very different to my own, but, in my view, even more interesting!
