This article presents a narrative, which is both creative and ethnographic, of the experience of dancing tango in Buenos Aires. The piece highlights the emotions and vulnerability of the researcher in her field as well as the gendered dynamics of a “milonga”. Such narrative provides the ground for exploring issues of distance in the field, the struggle between the anthropologist- and the dancer-self, and how these inform reflexivity in all stages of anthropological work.
