When dancing a milonga can be intimate...so very intimate...

One couple, sharing a dance in an incredible open air venue [Denver's Cheesman Pavilion] built of marble in classic Greek architectural style... a lone, classically trained guitarist in one corner, with no other accompaniment...one man, one woman, [one guitarist] dancing a beautiful tango [milonga]...

And 300 people watching!!!

I've posted this before, way back in early October of last year, just after I started the blog. I really like it so I am re-posting it. Someone in Tel Aviv, Israel was looking at it tonight, last night that is, so that's what refreshed my memory. That's right, my one year anniversary is just around the corner - September 9 a year ago was my first post.

Oh, and that's Gregory "Grisha" Nisnevich, on the guitar. He's based in Denver and is a great dancer in his own right. The song is "Milonga del Ayer".

Here it is...
La Tanguera found and posted this YouTube video from the May 2007 Denver Milonguero Festival...it's the video version of my photos of their performance...

What could be better than the elegance of their dance, and the sweetness too, (with the simple music.) Love it!
Nice start to my day.

They're really my fave couple. There are so many to love, but I just always want to *be* Juilo y Corina. With other dancers, I want to dance like them, but this couple, ahhhhh.
