The breathtaking performances made you wish you'd paid more attention to the dance classes your mother sent you to when you were a child.

A sizzling series of unconnected love stories set in a café. Imagine an accordion, glasses of rich red wine and eyes meeting across the room and you'll get an idea of the ambiance created in the Empire Theatre by Tango Pasion during the three nights it played here.

The intricate steps, perfectly timed, looked easy and effortless and yet must have taken hours of practice and expertise to appear so natural.

Equal thought and precision was given to the costumes which had a 1930's appearance with sensuous silks, rich reds, beads and braces for the blokes.

The troupe of about ten dancers (five couples) included two principal dancers and then there was the crooner who periodically sang love songs while chasing a woman who had dropped her hankerchief.

The finale included a light sequence to coincide with the principal dancers on the stage giving the impression of two figures made of stars shadowing their human counterparts, a match made in heaven you might say.

Altogether, a jaw-dropping performance of dance so appreciated by the Liverpool audience that the performers returned on stage for three encores.
