Maria Villalobos

Maria is no longer with us, but we can know her dancing thanks to this video in Teatro Cervantes from 1992.  I learned of Maria’s death in May.  She retired from going to the milongas many years ago and died on December 5, 2008.  The last time I saw her was in Lo de Celia.

Maria and Tete dance in this stage production by directed by Marisa Galindo. They are my favorites among the eight couples.  They are on the left side of the stage in the video.  A much slimmer Tete is wearing a brown suit, and Maria is wearing a black dress and white shoes.  They are connected and feeling the music.
