For several years my grandson, Joel Smith, and I had a blast as partners. He was hooked on tango from the moment he tried it at age 13 and with his natural talent he became an excellent leader in a very short time. This photo was taken about 2008 when he was 20 and I was, let me think, oh yeah, 68.
Things have changed dramatically since. Two bouts of respiratory failure, am on oxygen 24/7 and all the accoutrements that tag along. Dancing is now a memory…..25 years of magic I would never have known had tango and I not met. My books, “Tango Quest” and “Tango and Life” represent and reflect those wonderful years of learning, loving and living Argentine Tango.
I would enjoy hearing your comments and tango story. firstname.lastname@example.org
My other website tells the story of how my son won the one-of-a-kind clone of Richard Petty’s (world famous and most winning race car driver in history) 1970 Plymouth Superbird! http://www.iwonthekingscar.com.
