I have always thought I have good musicality. For years, I’ve been dancing in international high-level events and always got compliments on my musicality and playfulness. As a kid, I studied music, composition and spent years playing an instrument. I attended some musi...

We all come into tango for different reasons. But many, if not most of us remain because of connection. Connection is a powerful and truly beautiful thing, and it’s also the driving force for belonging.

I remember it like it was yesterday. We were dancing. The connection was divine. Music was like pulse in our bodies, part of us. It was one of the best dances I’ve ever had.


It was so good that I had to sit down and “breathe” a bit afterwards. I was almost moved to tea...

Why do Maja and Marko pay special attention to their clothing? How did Marko start dancing tango (and it wasn't the usual way!), what's the most incredible thing they've tried in their travels, and what is the difference between tango in Europe and tango in Asia?
