YouTube is almost as smart as....Google!

seriously - I was having a goofy-feeted-uncoordinated-me moment{read: HOUR} at Zumba when the instructor was trying to show us the steps to...the Tango!
..the what? you say..

Tango..you know..all serious and foot-y.  And usually done with 2 people..not an imaginary partner...


Yeah..well, dancing is coming back ..and who knows..maybe I can find a really stretchy black Tango dress..and slick my short-gray hair back..and buy a rose..and just .maybe Mr. B would take me dancing the Tango in Utah...................

...........nah. Probably not.



But I want to learn it anyway.  and if I had this many legs...


..and had a diagram...

OK, so maybe a diagram would be ..ah..confusing..


.so I searched YouTube to see if they had any Tango videos..

Have I introduced you to ..my little friend...?? {in the voice of Al Pacino..who...by the way, has his own Tango video..from The Scent of a Woman ..}


..anyway..get a glass of ice water ready..cover your keyboard from the impending drool..and watch as Antonio Bandaras shows a bunch of smart-alec-y-inner-city- high school kids how it's done..



can we say "hubba-hubba"??

Yeah, well now go and put your earphones on and...DANCE !

I loved the tango when I was very young. My Dad taught me the Tango. He and mum could do it beautifully but it was out of fashion when I got older and so I forgot how it goes. Would be good to be able to do that now but I bet I would put my back out. he he he .

Must admit the whole image made me chuckle. Utah and tango really DON'T go together...

Whereever there is passion, tango can exist.... am guessing there's passion in Utah afterall!
I am going to look into ZUMBA classes here on the east coast, sounds like new twist on Aerobics from the '80's.

That video would have been SO much better if Antonio had done it with no shirt on.

Yes ~ hubba hubba! I love that man and I love when Al Pacino dances in
Scent of a Woman. It's a great dance.
