I hang around in several dancing communities, but I find tango to be the closest/most personal, moreso than ballroom or salsa or swing. Perhaps it's the Argentinian influence that makes your teachers almost like family, a wonderful thing ... until you feel it's time to move on. I'm perfectly happy with my crowd, but am thinking of expanding my tango horizons just for the hell of it and I know it won't be taken well to "defect" and learn from one of the three other tango camps in my neck of the woods. Nobody will say anything, but having seen the reaction when other people have started taking lessons from another camp in addition to current ones or jumped the fence entirely, I'm not looking forward to my teachers finding out, only for fear of hurting them. At the end of the day, I'm a free agent and will take lessons from whomever I choose, but is the tango community, or any other dancing community you are in, similarly inclined? Have you had any pleasant/nasty experiences when jumping camps within a field. I know from first-hand experience, ballroom can be simlar and certainly ballet.
