Ricardo Vidort RIP - 1929-2006




Ricardo Vidort was a lifelong tango dancer from Buenos Aires, so-called "milonguero," one of the few of his milieu to travel to Europe and the U.S. in recent years to teach. He died of cancer Sunday, May 21, in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

I never met him, but I spent a lot of time lately studying these videos (taken by James Freed, Tango Video Project) of Ricardo Vidort dancing to "Poema" and "Charamusca" at last year's Denver Memorial Day Festival (May 2005). The images above are taken from the "Poema" video.
