Excerpts from the interview.
What exactly is Tango and How flexible is Tango as a dance form?
Have you ever imagined a music which can touch your soul and make you move in a fantastic way? Well yes I'm talking about sensational dance form "Argentine Tango". Tango is a couple dance. It is a social performance, done in close embrace. The legwork and footwork is very important in it.
Since how long have you been practicing and how hard was it to start it in India?
I have been doing it for more than a decade now. It is difficult to promote it in India. In India, close embrace, with a opposite gender is a taboo. Husbands, wives, parents do not like their partner or children to dance in close contact of an unknown person. People do not understand that it is not sexual. It is sensual. It is challenging to promote it in Indian schools, colleges and universities are not willing to promote it.
