I have always loved Tango from afar. Passionate and mysterious, Tango has captivated me all of my life and can now finally say that I know what it’s like to take those forward steps with intention. Thanks to the amazing instruction from Tracie and Daniel, my love for Tango has finally gone from afar to the forefront.
While only about half way through the classes, I have already seen Tango interweave into my regular life… From seeing better weight-shifting in my salsa steps to even taking Tango steps around the office. It’s very infectious and sexy and I have a feeling that it’s only a matter of time before a few Tangos will creep into the playlists at the socials.
What is it about Tango that makes it so amazing? First of all, the music is potent. Booming and explosive one moment and then subtle and soft the next; the music instantiates passion. Secondly, just being able to take a step in Tango requires complete weight-shifting control and perfect confidence. Thirdly, being so close with your partner you can’t help but feel the magic found within the music.
While I’m no where near being able to tear up a tango at a social, I am feeling so much better from actually taking the steps to learning one of the most romantic dances.
Stay Shining Salseros!
