Romantic Evening
Author: Anonymous;
Let's imagine a romantic table set for two,
Candles flickering against flowers, their scent filling the room.
Embers brightly burning in the warm fireplace,
The sound of the fire crackling with vibrant grace.
The finest bottle of red wine is set for you and I.
Our favorite love songs are softly playing in the background.
Candles and the fireplace is our only light around,
A perfect setting for our romantic evening of pure bliss.
Our hearts both filled with passion, wanting to blend together.
Embraced, looking deeply into each others eyes we caress all over.
We make a toast to our gift of love sent from above.
As we drink from each other's glass, our hands entwine,
Softly we kiss, our lips now taste like sweet wine.
We slowly fall into ecstasy, our bodies melt together as one.
Emotions flowing and hearts soaring, we pledge our hearts.
Two lovers who desire each other for eternity.
Let's make it happen, my dear,
Let's do this tonight, for real.

If you've never taken a class with Moti, you are in for a treat...

Moti’s beginner classes provide students with the fundamental vocabulary, techniques, and concepts necessary to build a successful foundation for Argentine tango social dancing.   The classes avoid the rote memorization of patterns and steps, which often leaves novice dancers fumbling on the dance floor. It instead emphasizes basic concepts of leading and following and the relationship among partners, the music, and other dancers to prepare students for any tango social dance experience.  Moti's teaching is highly energized, yet presented in a casual and relaxed environment. This allows the students to learn simply, quickly, and confidently   More advanced dancers can join Moti for an in-depth study of Argentine tango mechanics and the complex concepts that allow students to master intricate movements with ease.  The class works with both open and close embrace styles and focuses heavily on improvisation, experimentation, and musical interpretation. Moti will acquaint students with the cutting edge movements associated with modern tango, but does so by retaining the classic look and vocabulary of traditional Argentine tango. This integrative approach, which combines both modern innovation  and a firm respect for tradition, gives students the tools to create their own dynamic and inventive styles.
