Taste of Freedom at Walzerlinksgestrickt

Tonight we went to Milonga Ballhaus Walzerlinksgestrickt. A formal room with gold columns and red velvet. At first it seemed a bit stiff and I felt my skirt was too short. But it turned out to be a very free atmosphere. The lights were low. The level was mixed, and it was not an intimidating dance floor for beginners. Moreover, there wasn’t any scowling and attitude.

Now that I am home at 4:30am and it is getting light, and I have eaten two punnets of blueberries, I have a profound realization which is that I experienced for the first time with Aurélie the kind of revelling I talk about all the time, which is the way that the revel can set the mark free.Because she takes care of her body, I am free to be much more musical, much better at managing traffic, and explore combinations I haven’t used before.

It’s an experience I’ve imagined and hoped for, but not experienced until tonight.

Here she is, dancing with Armin.


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?
