As Moti put it together: What is Tango Gravitas?

N.B -Latin Noun Gravitas ; As a modern loanword conveys a sense of substance or depth of personality. As in Ancient Roman Context - the word Gravitas comunicated a sense of dignity,seriousness and duty.Gravitas is one of the virtues of Ancient Romans society,expected men to posess along with Pietas and Dignitas. Off course it has nothing to do with gravity.

Tango Gravitas represents a new generation of Argentine tango dancers who strive to push the bounderies of artistic creativity while still holding strong to the fundamentals of traditions.Firmly grounded in the Argentine roots of the dance's conseption, it emphasizes the intrinsic concept of partner connection,leading and following,musical interpretration and the classic tango aesthetic.Tango Gravitas places primary importance on the silent discourse between the man and the woman,who unceasingly comunicate through their movements and through the music.It embraces an inovation and experimentation which can be realized only through this constant interplay between leader and follower who share in the responsability of listning and reacting to each other to the music and to the other dancers sharing the dance floor . Tango Gravitas promotes the dynamism, inventivness and the originality associated with tango's progressive evolution while simultanously striving to uphold the dignity of and a respect for the past.
