People of tango #14
Magda Skawińska (Warsaw)
What is so magical for you about tango?
“I would say honesty and courage it demands. For me these two are the most magical and at the same time the most difficult things in tango. In everyday life we usually are not 100% ourselves, we put bigger or smaller masks to impress someone, to avoid rejection, to achieve something we want, to think better of ourselves, to make others like us a little bit more… But if you really want to dance tango you have to be absolutely honest with yourself, accept who you are with all the bright and dark sides of you. And you have to be brave enough to show your truth to the other, the one you dance with. And when two people meet in tango, ready to share their truth with each other and willing to accept the others truth, that’s when the real magic happens.
And this magic is what I wish to all who dance tango.”
