I had one lesson with Pavlo Veron. It was in Wuppertal. A former partner of Pablo’s, Lizelot de Stigter, told me Pavlo was giving lessons only for one day and that she’d be happy to partner me. It was essentially impossible to dance poorly with Lizelot. She could follow anyone. Everything about her exuded kindness.
Pavlo watched us dance one dance, one song from beginning to end. Slowly, he walks over to me and says, “This is very rare. Almost with everyone who has a lesson with me, no matter how long they have danced tango, I have to begin with walking. No one knows how to walk. Then I have to work with their embrace. No one understands the embrace. But you are fine. You know how to walk. Your embrace is beautiful. You just don’t know tango.”
But Pablo and Geraldine do. Enjoy.
