Strictly Come Diplomacy
They say in diplomacy it takes two to tango. Argentine Ambassador Carlos Sersale and his partner Linette de Jager put that theory to the test by hosting a series of Argentine Tango lessons at his Belgravia residence.
A jolly group of dancing diplomats took up the challenge to be taught the art of the Argentine Tango under the expert tutelage of Maria Tsiatsiani and Leandro Palou, of the Tango Academy London.
The head judge (or Pug) was Linette’s celebrity dog, Mylene. Dressed in a frilly pink tutu, she wagged her tail approvingly at the performances. Their efforts were rewarded with an amazing show dance at the final lesson – and some empanadas and fine Argentine Malbec. A brilliant initiative which we at Embassy hope will be replicated. Viennese Waltz, anyone?
