Inspiration Tango, more than just a show...a tango experience...let yourself be inspired!
Have you felt the soft caress of wind on your face?
It is the same sensation as when we are listening to tango.
We listen to the music with our ears, but it is the heart which makes the feet vibrate and move.
This vibration will connect two people as one.
The whole body will thrill with the music of Tango.
This inspiration will dance with you. That is the root of Tango. That is Inspiration Tango.
