After lurking for some time in the AT section and reading your threads about the incredible connection between two people in AT and after hearing a girlfriend saying the same thing, I finally convinced my husband that we take some AT classes (it is my Xmas gift). I have been wanting to do this for a long time but he always says that the music gets him depressed. He is salsero from the heart, he is Latino and he is a natural and good dancer. He also understands the music and the lyrics and if he can enjoy the dance, he will look great! That said and reading about the difficulty of AT, especially for leaders, maybe you can give me some hints and tips how to make it a more enjoyable experience for him so that maybe he will enjoy the dance. If I want him to continue after this class, I have to do what I can to make it an enjoyable experience for him. I love seeing tango and I love the sensuality and passion of it. I also enjoy the music. We are bloody beginners, have no clue about AT. We dance mostly salsa, cha cha and merengue. Any advice would be appreciated.
