a steamy night in buenos aires – went to see boccatango – it was amazingly artistic. julio boccaâ€™s dancing is so sensual – my favorite dance was when he was dancing with a ladder – his weaving in and out of the ladder was so agile and catlike. at first, the concert was admittedly a bit disappointing – i had such high hopes for the famous table dance (that is one lucky table). but slightly disappointed, but it got better as the night went on – the costumes got sparser, and the dancing got freer. it made sense, and it was really amazing to see.
some shocked viewers were surrounding me. originally the argentine tango was meant to be danced with two men, and it really brought fresh perspective on gender roles, especially on stage. overall, it was a great opportunity to see a legendary dancer like julio bocca, currently the principal at the american ballet theater.
