    dress too sexy for tango?

    I love the dress! I noticed when I was in Buenos Aires how cute female tango dancers are dressed to be in milongas. Short and tight skirts are everywhere and that seems to be the norm for women of all ages. In contrast, the tango community in my home country (I live on the west coast) is...

    That's such an interesting observation - I just started working on my styling recently (tango newbie here :P) and I will definitely watch a lot of her videos to understand what you meant by taking control over it.
