I started a year too late. Daniela & Rommel made a big impact at ASU and unfortunately I missed out. The ASU community slowly broke apart after they left Arizona.

campus tango is very simple and joyful, it taught me that whatever level you at, whoever you dance with, always remember the reason why you chose tango in the first place, for me is because I love the music so much.
