Since then we have performed on international music events, on conferences and birthdays. We have taught blind people to dance, made music researchers from the entire world to feel movement and rhythm in their bodies in a sense that musical notation can never reveal to them, and we have also begun to make research out of our Argentine tango dancing. We have lectured on dancing and the limits of language, and in November 2011 we will present our work for the first time at an international conference.
