Tango culture is so rich many writers, singers, artists and journalists tried to encapsulate its true essence in a few words. As a consequence, some tango quotes became quite famous. Here’s a nice one today.

“The Dancer believes that his art has something to say which cannot be expressed in words or in any other way than by dancing… there are times when the simple dignity of movement can fulfill the function of a volume of words. There are movements which impinge upon the nerves with a strength that is incomparable, for movement has power to stir the senses and emotions, unique in itself. This is the dancer’s justification for being, and his reason for searching further for deeper aspects of his art.”

– Doris Humphrey
