I wanted a break from tango. Maybe 4 months. That was late 2019. It’s been 2 years. And I still have no prospect of dancing. No partners nearby. Every event cancelled.
There are many things I don’t miss. Milongas included, actually.
The gifts of tango are not all about embrace, and do not all require music.
Dancing is about embodiment, exploring and extending the possibilities of our bodies.
I spend more time stretching. I look for other sorts of partners to work with my body: wheelbarrows, firewood.
I dance more freely, and all day.
I do much bigger voleos.
