Loving Yourself Enough To Say NO!

There are too many nice people in the world today…or so it might seem, with the number of “yes” folks you run into on a daily basis. However, what about the lesser heard “evil sibling”, the word NO?

As a child, you were raised to be considerate of others, and to accommodate them as much as possible.

3 Quick & Easy Tango Styles

3 Quick & Easy Tango Styles

El Abrazo

The Tango’s frame, called an abrazo or “embrace,” is not rigid, but flexibly adjusts to different steps, and may vary being quite close, to offset in a “V” frame, to open. The flexibility is as important as is all movement in dance.

This allows the dancers to vary the dance from moment to moment to match the music (which often has both legato and/or staccato elements) and their mood.

The Top 5 Mistakes In Tango Milongas

Mistake # 1 – Tandas
At a milonga, music is played in sets called “tandas.” Usually three or four songs are played by the same orchestra followed by the “cortina” (the curtain) which signals the end of the “tanda”.
