In Argentine tango rules, women do not allow to leading unless they are
teachers and they only led in classes or at the end of the milongas.
Lexa, as a member of the New York tango community for 15 years, she
is responsible for giving hundreds of women their first lesbian experience
through the tango embrace.
Before she became a leader at milonga, it took her 2 years to learn how
to following, and then she started to dancing in man-step in milonga
as a leader, in black Armani suits and shoes. When she began to lead
well, there were some negative reactions. In fact, they once threw
her out of milonga because of the complaining from other dancers.
Now, she is a host of GLBT milonga, teaches tango lessons
to the gay community of New York, and other people as well.
"We are an international community and we should have all our beautiful
colors shining together on the same dance floor. I am a mystic and a
missionary of Argentine tango, I was sent to embrace this planet with
love, connection, and healing vibes." Says her.
