The aim is to examine how the musical work of Roberto Carlos was mobilized in the danceshow “The songs you danced for me”. The contact between the songs and the contemporary dance defined different meanings. The results indicate that such contact reaffirms romantic love and the heroism of the protagonist, but also opens possibilities for relationships that escape from the heteronormative romantic ideal.
