Resurgence Of Tango All Over The World

Resurgence Of Tango All Over The WorldWhy Tango?

Why Tango?

  • In today’s world of computers and smart phones we are losing the feelings that only touching another human being can give us.
  • In the world of salsa or swing dancing there is no “Intimate Embrace” like there is in Tango.

We all need to feel part of something that is outside of ourselves.

Argentine Tango Foot Care Made Easy

Argentine Tango Foot Care Made Easy

Foot Care

  • Veteran tango dancers know that wearing the right shoe is essential for both enjoyment and safety while dancing. This holds true for both men and women. With women, though the matter is even more important since many of the lead/follow elements of the dance will depend on the women’s ability to make precise movements without losing balance.
  • Always wear orthotic insoles in your shoes.
  • Take an Ibuprofen, Naproxen or Aspire before the dance. Continue reading “Argentine Tango Foot Care Made Easy”

Rejection and How To Handle It

 You Can’t Please Everyone

  • In the song ” Garden Party” the singer Ricky Nelson sings:
  • I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
  • A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
  • When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
  • No one recognized me, I didn’t look the same
  • But it’s all right now, I learned my lesson well.
  • You see, ya can’t please everyone, so ya got to please yourself!

Hitler Loses It About Etiquette At Tango Milongas!- A Parody!

The parody talks about staying on the outside and dancing in a counterclockwise circle. Not going overboard with embellishments. The importance of not hitting the couple in front of you. Respecting the other couples dance space. The rule of not passing the dancers in front of you. No need to bump into the dancers and saying sorry if you do. That the leaders should dance others than just their friends. The importance of body hygiene, taking a bath before the milonga. If you seat a lot bring an extra shirt with you these things is basic stuff.
