This is following up from my response re. the benefits of teaching the Basic 8 to the Lead. And so I'm going to pose this task to guys as leaders (forgive me ladies if there are any other lady leads out there - if so join in). Scenario: Hello, my name's Fred. I haven't danced Argentine Tango before although my soon to be wife has been dancing AT for four years and is very good. Eye-popping, traffic-stoppingly good, that is. We're getting married in 3 months and I want to surprise her by taking her to the floor and leading her in a tango. I have to confess I am bit of a doornail when it comes to being able to put my foot down or even clap on the beat and not being good at remembering difficult sequences, should you choose to take me on as one of your students you will have your work cut out (ha, ha, ha). My fiance hails from the West Indies and so has a superb sense of rhythm. I need not to make a complete arse of myself and really want this gift of my learning her dance as a my gift to her for accepting me as her husband. Can you help me? Can you help me to impress my wife and the guests on the day. If so, in my first session with you what will you teach me and where will I be, standard-wise in, say, 4 weeks. Studying with you twice a week, what will I have learned in the 4 weeks. If only to give me an idea of how much I will have learned and how much I shall need to learn. Many questions I know, but I want to be if not show-stopping at lead good enough to capture the audience. Fred. Okay chaps, over to you.
