Inheriting the tango tradition from the Argentinian masters, Pablo Veron innovated its style into a unique form which won him the respect of previous generations as well as today's tango dancers. He starred in The Tango Lesson, the story of an English woman obsessed by tango and the man who teaches it to her. This cult classic made Veron a sex symbol, as well as a symbol of tango's resurgence. Today in Buenos Aires, Pablo acts as a remarkable ambassador for this mysterious, sensual and sometimes whimsical dance. Having been recognized both in Argentina and worldwide, Pablo Veron has been instrumental in the rebirth of tango.
"A good tango dancer is someone who has rhythm and who has a good musical
ear. He also has respect for the woman; to know what to do at the right time
with the right partner. He adapts himself to the woman. He makes her feel
that she is the best dancer. He dances for her."
