The 3rd Dubai Tango Festival wrapped up with a Gala Dinner at the JW Marriott Hotel in Dubai last April 18 and I was fortunate enough to have witnessed such a captivating evening. Actually, to say captivating would be an understatement as I was completely in awe with the performances that evening.
The Festival brought in world renowned Tango dancers from Argentina to the sandy shores of Dubai for this special evening. According to the Argentinian Ambassodor His Excellency , this festival wishes to share the beauty and grace of this South American dance. And boy, did it do its job, I was ready to tango the following day! J
The Gala Evening also featured the photos by Ahmed Al Agouzal, Tifffany Schultz. Olesya Sydorenko, an artist also showed her collection of paintings.
I was in a trance during the performances of Alejandra Hobert with Adrian Veredice and the salon style of Facundo Jauregui was simply smooth but what moved were the performances of Lucila Cionci and Rodrigo Corbata. They had 3 dance numbers which, basing on the facial expressions of the couple and body language depicted a love story. The Courtship – the number started with the man serenading the woman with the Harmonica. The marriage part was full of intense moves. Then the couple falls apart – I could tell because of the anguish in the woman’s face, how she held on to her husband’s arms and the nonchalance on the husband’s face but all is well that ends well, they find themselves back in each other’s arms.
It is not one of my normal posts but since I believe that TANGO is truly an art form and Fashion for me is art, I thought of just sharing this experience with you. Besides Summer is fast approaching and you may want to learn a new skill J
