The Tangomania in LA during the summer of 1986 was not to last; by September it was all over. "Tango Argentino" left Los Angeles to play in other cities and countries around the world. Without this show at the Pantages Theater, and the accompanying television publicity, interest in tango soon waned. We were all wondering if the initial enthusiasm for tango could be maintained, or whether it would all soon die out. I'm afraid it almost died out. By the end of the year, there were only about 6 or 7 of us left; but we all shared the goal of trying to keep tango alive in Los Angeles.
