GUIDELINES

 

SUGGESTIONS

OUR SUGGESTIONS:  

* Make aquaintances and friends with those people who share your values and your reasons for dancing. Don't confuse conviviality with friendship or you'll end up resentful.  

* Invite your friends to join dance events. Make dance parties among your friends. Roll up the carpet and dance at home. Let people dance the style they want. Your task is to dance the best you can.

* Visit other social dances in your city, state or province to get another perspective. Dance with the people you like instead of the "best dancer", or the "hunk" or "babe". 
 
* If you ask someone to dance and they decline, don't take it personally. We all have times for dancing, have preferences or sometimes just feel like watching. If you're asked and aren't in the mood, be gracious. A "no thanks, but thank-you anyway" goes a long way.

* Learn to follow the line of dance. Otherwise you'll either hurt other dancers or get hurt yourself.

* Visit other dance instructor's classes to get another perspective. Research the instructor's style, their teaching venues, curriculum, size of classes, pricing and make up policies.

* There is more that on style of teaching and more than one form of learning. Our stages of development at the time may benefit from different styles.

* Find teachers who make life easy for you, who can read what you need at this time in your tango, who can actually explain in detail what they themselves do.

* There is absolutely no reason to tolerate being berated, humiliated or abused by anyone, a teacher or a dancer.

*Share your music among friends. Never lose sight of the beauty of the music, and what it feels like to dance harmoniously.

* The world of tango is diverse, there out there enough variety that if you keep working at your dancing and at your dance partnering you will progressively find the level, the partners, the groups that will allow to feel better situated.

* If things get feel like it is too much, at that point, take a break for a month or two. Hopefully, you'll come back refreshed and see it with new eyes.

"STUDY WITH US AND BRING ROMANCE TO YOUR DANCE"
