They look genuinely happy. I like the way her arm goes around behind his neck with her hand falling onto his shoulder. Not textbook form, but beautifully intimate.
I was under the impression there are several different acceptable holds in Argentine Tango.
I like the way the light is falling on them.
In retrospect, I picked the wrong spot to sit. Most of the time the dancers were backlit and silhoetted. This one and an few more turned out. I almost went with this one, but it seemed almost too intimate and not enough about the dance.

Oh Jesus, that's beautiful. I'm glad now that I came back here and looked again.
As am I!
These are, both, excellent action portraits. Oh, sweet!
That's quite a compliment, considering your last post. Thank you.
He, particularly, seemed to be glowingly happy just to be dancing, regardless of the audience, hot sun, paving stones, everything.
This has made me want to pick up tango again.

There are moments in life when things are just right. It would appear he was having such a moment. (I think she was too, from the expression on her face.)
