    The mistakes of tango

    I dislike the fact that they discourage people from starting to learn tango. This means fewer dancers, just because some people are caught into this system of pseudomystical ideas.

    The mistakes of tango

    So, tango should not be a "fun dance" and people that are searching for it "missed the dance"? that's what I'm talking about. And, about the "easy learning" part. I know someone that teaches tango after 1 year. He trained at least 4 times a week, he's a professional dancer, so this proves it is...

    Many tango blogs, many tango sources, the most famous of them, say this. I thought this was the tango culture's essence.

    Going to Buenos Aires for Tango

    Your intention of focusing on tango is admirable. I'm sure there are many lessons, even spiritual, that you could only learn by doing many other things at once, like picture, meditation, martial arts, etc. though, don't forget, despite all its wonder, tango is just a dance, a way people...

    The mistakes of tango

    I have stoped dancing tango for a month and a half. I'll return to it after a while. I want to say that tango is not that popular or enjoyable because of stuff that tangoeros do. Aknowledging and changing this would probably help a lot, to draw people in. There are just a few. 1. Tango needs a...

    Song Title Identification Thread

    What kind of "tango" is it? They don't look in eachother eyes when they dance. As they say, argentine tango is like romance, american tango is like marriage and european tango is like divorce. No eye contact is like having sexual intercourse (sorry :)) while watching the sports channel and...

    Lost my tango appetite

    Mladenac, I would gladly do this, but it all started when my teacher along with other students. female and men alike, told me that I'm not on the beat. I can hardly hear the beat, when I dance I follow that long sound created by other instruments like the violin or the bandoneon. It's hard for...

    Lost my tango appetite

    This dance brings me no pleasure anymore, no satisfaction. Milongas are late in the night so I can't go, at practicas we mostly have female dancers with a few weeks of training-2 months at most. I see people with many years of tango behind being able to dance them, I see women being in a trance...

    What do you do to get into the right mental state for tango?

    You overthink this. There is no "tango mood" in my opinion. Just go, if you enjoy this music and this dance, dance, no matter how you feel, even if you feel inadequate, dance angrily, sadly, joyously, bitterly, sweetly, not matter, tango is tango.

    Confusing feelings on the floor

    Have you experienced this? Sometimes you feel relaxed and the dance flows, amusingly and relaxed, with no powerful energy, other times you feel surges, a twitch of energy in you that comes from the feeling of music and you can control and send to the follower and someother times when you dance...
