We all have a different story that brought us to tango in the first place – whether it is the nagging wife or girlfriend, the cute guy who made us swoon, the tune that gave us goosebumps, the simple desire to do something creative and artistic, Strictly’s wild leg moves… Something made us start tango, and something made us continue dancing: once a week, then twice a week, then 3 times a week… You might know the story.
We’ve asked people around us what tango was to them and we’re publishing a series of blogs with their genuine answers! After all, talking about tango is the next best thing after actually dancing tango.
Tricked, by a friend… lulled into a false sense of security and then blindsided by tango classes.
Bambi on ice had more grace than I on the dance floor… and yet a year later I’m still attending classes, giving the furry woodland creature a run for its money.
The inescapable truth about tango is it is beautiful. The music, the embrace, the steps… they are all so intrinsic that a change in one influencers the other.
On top of this is the family I’ve met. There is a real warmth and acceptance which is so welcoming and through it, I have developed some life long friendships.
Come back in a few days for our next blog post! And do let us know if you’d like to be featured in this series!
