Unfortunately I'm one of those "perpetual beginners" (leader) and after more than 10 years have realized that tango simply isn't my dance (several reasons), but I still would like to go occasionally to support my spouse and dance some with her and perhaps a couple other people. We also dance swing, and many swing dances have a large number of novices (up half the dances or even more) who tend to dance mostly (but not always exclusively) with each other, and are content to do so. This would suit me a lot better, but there's certainly no place like that in our area (Washington DC), and from what I can tell probably not anywhere else. Just curious if anyone has come across something like this. Even our practicas tend to be on the "serious" side.
