Other than needing 2 or 3 dances to get it right, I am not sure that I understand your reply to the (my) referenced post. Incidentally, the waiting at the beginning of the song is also "cultural" to Argentina, and thus not a "requisite", but more an option, in the U.S. Non?

This is this part of your post. I disagree with the opinion that dancing the entire tanda is an option. Having mate and empanadas at the milongas instead of beer and cheeseburger is a cultural option and you can copy it or not.
