Concluding Tango Drawings of Pampas Devils' class in Oregon


Here are real people dancing the Tango.













On the stage the Tango dance is choreographed to tell a story. On the ballroom dance floors or dance clubs wherever they may be all over the world real people dance Tango. I observed this month many kinds of people just naturally expressing their story in a dance lasting just a few minutes. The story is seen in their faces, hands and attitude of their movement. The Tango is magic to expression.


I have filled my note book with drawings and now hope to thank my instructers, the Pampas Devils maybe on their voyage through Astoria, Oregon on their way to Alaska cruising on the Celebrity Infinity. Or maybe by the internet!












Dancing Tango is what the explorers sought - the fountain of youth, health, and the intermingling of cultures. The Tango is a great creation of the fringe of Argentina's society in times past.

On the internet there are a number of histories of the Tango. But I think what the annonymous professor, Doctor of Art History would like to know is the information for these drawings. The Pampus Devils are a Tango dance group who perform and teach on the Celebrity cruise ship, Infinity. Last January I enjoyed sketching students in their class and at the various ball room dancing floors of the Infinity Ship. When I returned home I did a few more drawings from memory and their DVD teaching instructions. And I am humbled to admit that I messed into the original drawings I did on ship thinking I was improving them.
