In July 2007, thanks to a protocol of understanding between the Ministry of Public Instruction and the National Yoga Federation, the ancient meditative and ascetic art of Yoga based on the sequential combination of positions that are generally known by the Hindu word ASANA and the spiritual reflections that come from listening to one’s own breathing and a greater awareness of one’s own existence in the “here and now” as body and soul made its official debut into the public schools of Italy, thus determining the development of a new pedagogical and educational project capable of helping children, boys and girls, and adults as well to find themselves anew through Yoga.

The space in which our children (and not just them) act and live impels us toward the virtual world rather than the real world as we become a society ever more inclined to follow the images that flow before us, the uncontrolled accretion of the instants that we don’t even realize we are living, a society that pays little attention to children as children but appears to value them only as individuals destined to be consumers of the products that advertising incessantly promotes to their mothers.

The ever more widespread use of information technologies and the most modern technological instruments with all their applications make it necessary for us to find new keys to the interpretation of what the moment of learning is all about.

The author draws the actual narration of her project of inserting Yoga in the schools directly out of the sample exercises and practices that bring together music, movements, words, and teachings in an attempt to discover an alternative language that emerges from the numerous literary citations relating to the child and his development as well as from his relationships to teachers and parents.

The Church of Tango is a passionate memoir of tragedy and adventure, lust and music, romance and tango, and above all, survival. A dancer all her life, she’d had to put it on hold while raising her artistic sons and caring for her dying husband. Now as she set her suitcase down on the ancient cobblestones of a Paris courtyard, she wondered—48 years old, 6,000 miles away from home, knowing no one—what was she doing? Each time disaster strikes her life, Cherie forges ahead, struggling to save herself from the wreckage by listening to the music and dancing, first in Los Angeles, then France, Mexico, Holland, and finally in the tango salons of Buenos Aires.

This is not a “tango book,” but a story of survival that cuts across death, cancer, Alzheimer’s, loss of home and homeland and cherished heirlooms and possessions, loss of shared histories, of hope for one’s children, of hope for the future, of love. But it’s also about finding love and unexpected joy. And about listening to the music and dancing.

I started writing this story at the time it began–in February of 1992, when I was so depressed after my husband’s death I wanted to swallow all of his left-over meds and follow him into the beyond. So what began in a way as a journal or diary became the chronicle of my road to survival in four countries. And once I made that decision to live no matter what tragedy came my way, I plugged on, through one tremendous loss after another, by dancing. No, not yet had the tango found me, but whatever dance there was at the time came to my rescue. I had always been a dancer, and now I knew dance could save me from despair.

As my adventures unfolded, the manuscript grew and grew. I had to make cuts in events, characters, reflections and realizations. That was the hardest part of bringing this story to fruition. There is so much left out. Who knows, maybe I’ll write The Daughter of the Church of Tango, or a prequel one day.

Our tango students come from all over the world: China, The Philippines, Australia, Viet Nam, New Zealand, Hawaii, South Africa, India, Nepal, Finland, Russia, Israel, Scandinavia, all over Europe, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Canada and the U.S. And one question they all ask me is, how did I end up teaching tango in Argentina?

This book is my answer.

The Church of Tango is a passionate memoir of tragedy and adventure, lust and music, romance and tango–and above all, survival.

It is said that when you learn to dance tango you are trapped by a kind of mysterious spell, enchanting but dangerous, because of the seduction of the dance, the strange attraction that unites two people that, maybe, do not know each other. However, many other signs will show up in the milonga. That is, the place where people go to dance tango, a place of powerful reunions and, at the same time, of big disillusions. Like the water in the seacoast that comes and goes, dancers communicate with each other, get lost in the music and the steps, surrender, and possibly they will start a relationship that, sooner or later, will end up in disillusion, the fall of the fiction. These stories want to show the disillusions, the need for fiction, the fantasies that do not come true, the failed love stories, the disguised loneliness, annoying and lying nights, the lacks hidden by frenzies and the moving passions between men and women when they dance the tango rhythm.

Jorge Lindman, writer, sociologist, journalist, traveler and dancer, of course porteño (he lives in Buenos Aires), he goes through life with several passions, among them literature and tango.
