Tango class summed up in one sentence:
I have major control & trust issues.
You must trust your dance partner and follow them with the feeling, the connection.
Don’t try to guess the next steps.
Don’t hurry through the steps.
“Your hearts must always face each other.” said my teacher. My arms & shoulders were so stiff my teacher made me (once again) follow him. “Breathe, you’re not breathing…at all.” I laughed. I was so concentrated on trying to remember the steps.
“Relax, trust me.” he says. I think I blushed. “No, stop. Trusttttt me. I will lead you.”
Okay. My entire body relaxed.
“See?” he said with a smile.
