Nicole Nau says “Tango is the dance of extremes. Black and white. Love and hate. Man and woman. Life and death. Two poles that attract. The feelings are inflamed, the air vibrates with passion. Tango is ecstasy – but it nevertheless follows precise rules and structures. That’s where his mystery lies! “
