    I want to buy my first tango shoes

    Vidadance shoes Personally I hardly dance in anything except my Vidadance aka my "Venney shoes". Great stability good fit and I think they look great in all but the most formal of situations. I've tried Darcos shoes as well and find them plasticky very liable to scuff and not at all...

    What comes after tango?

    lol ... well I must admit I'm not much on the board at the moment ... a little bit bored with tango and a lot more interested in life outside. I still dance from time to time but more for the social side than the dancing. Tango is all about feeling and contact. So much that I miss the...

    Dancing to the music

    I agree with all of this to a point. For me the interesting thing is how milongueros have stripped down their dancing to the bare essentials. Any intermediate/advanced dancer will be dancing to the music. But they are almost always being too "busy". Milongueros know how to make more of less and...
