I feel a bit numb after receiving a phone call with the news of her passing. I’m trying to imagine Lo de Celia Tango Club without Celia Blanco.
This is how I’ll remember her. Her spirit will live on in the place she created and where so many have enjoyed tango.
Franco was hoping to dance Chacarera with Celia one Sunday evening, and Celia couldn’t refuse his invitation. I recorded what is probably the last time she danced.
Here’s a video of Celia dancing in her milonga.
