Mmmm … I just discovered some very pretty tango clothing.

Hannah Poston has well done exactly my plan for UltraVioleta … Make a series of perfect cuts, but then assemble each garment from unique fabric, so no two people have exactly the same one: “Your dance is unique. your clothing should be too.”

And the cuts are super smart. It’s easy to see that she understands exactly the priorities and possibilities for great tango clothing. Available online from Poema.

 

If you’re uncomfortable with backless tops, wear a lacy camisole underneath, like the Galloon Bustier from Free People (out of print at the moment but you may find it with resellers).

Thanks to Diva Pali for this tip!.

I'd love to dance with you

I want you to know that you're not alone....

... neither in your dreams for tango nor in your frustrations.

  • Do you feel that you have yet to achieve the promise tango held out for you?
  • Are you bored with your dancing – or your partners'?
  • Are you tired of waiting on men?
  • Do you long for sensations that seem to become more rare as you continue dancing?

I've experienced all of these feelings and I blog about the highs and lows of my tango journey. My insights help other dancers. One described the blog: "Like Water for Tango Dancers".

Every day I work to understand tango more profoundly. Why do we love it so much that we stay with it through tough times? At its best, what does it give us?

I believe that the rapture of tango is mutual concentration, which takes us into an experience called "FLOW". I'm researching the conditions of Flow so I can help people get there more often. One thing is clear, we need to:

Stop Waiting for Partners, and start
Building them

I've written a 10-step action guide. Are you ready to find the Partners you want?
