Extract report from the French TV Channel TF1

" Now for me" says Pascale, "a good dancer is someone who allows me to express myself someone who can be surprised and likes to play. In order to do that, women need to have a more active role than the one she has today. Ideally she would have to become a little more self support to allow men to express themselves even more..."

"Too many people bypass authentic experiences when they go to Buenos Aires because they are not prepared. In the packages that I offer, I make sure people understand how the tango scene works. How does one find the most appropriate milongas when you have sometimes 30 places to choose from per day. Some places host various milongas in the same day, organizers have their milongas in different places, how do you know when to go when it changes all the time?, not mentionning, how do you know if a milonga is traditional or not? "

"Usually unprepared for the milongas in Buenos Aires tango dancers often miss authentic experiences. I decided to start giving conferences abroad to inform tango communities. I want to make sure dancers get a chance to discover what I call "the real tango". I believe tango in Buenos Aires is like a big game, if you don’t know the rules it is very hard to play."
