Tango & Love
It was a wonderful tango evening at Divo last night, with an added benefit–the celebration of Jamie Rose’s debut book, “Shut Up & Dance!”
The novel is a wonderful, personal and humorous story about how Jamie tackled the difficulties of relationships by using the principles of dance, on and off the floor. Jaimie utilizes the personal stories of not only her own, but that of her mother and father, who had a long, wonderful and dancing relationship, and of several tangueras in the Los Angeles tango community.
During a VIP party before the regular milonga, guests were treated to empanadas, wine and a reading of excerpts from Jaime’s book–in the middle of which she paused to dance a tango with Moti Buchboot.
Her husband Kip was there in support, and proudly took photos and blushed whenever he was pointed out, and there was plenty of dancing, of course.
