Happy tango.. so right I want to cry: Tango Loft

This milonga is so the way it should be that I’m in shock. Lots of girls dancing together, men skipping and giggling, all kinds of whimsical music, soltadas everywhere, a breadboard with shared bread, a kitchen, big bouquets of fresh flowers, couches, candles, cats. Nobody watching much. People dancing for themselves full stop.

Please see Thomas Conte’s perfect album of photos from this night. He captures the spirit of this place so well with this album. Thank you Thomas!

I dance a beautiful tanda with Aurélie after which I realized “well now I have to get better because that was as far as I can go with what I have.”

On the way home, I get the nicest compliment from one of the marks: “I did movements with you that I have never done before.” Then the other one chimed in “it’s like you open possibilities.”

I want you to know that you are not alone…

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

My deepest desire is the same as all my students and friends … those who have yet to start dancing and those who dance a lot.

It’s partnership.

One thing I’ve learned on this quest, we need to:

Stop Waiting for Partners, and start Building them.

I’ve written a 10-step Action Plan.

Are you ready to find the Partners you want?
