Interesting Note On Followers

There is this one particular follower I get to dance with from time to time that does a few things that I used to find very distracting and somewhat annoying (embellishments, self led lapizes, etc...) what she does is not important, what is important is that lately I've begun to enjoy listening to what she has to contribute to the dance more and more.

I guess it's part of the listening lesson that I have been getting from a couple of my favorite instructors for more than a couple of years.

The point is, that even though I thought I was doing pretty well on this listening thing before now it's beginning to make more and more sense.

As an added benefit I'm finding that it is easier to do single axis turns (small colgadas) with her than almost anyone else, it seems this may have been what she was expecting,( I'm not asking her ) or could it be that I'm improving on this aspect of leading that I have neglected for quite a long time because it is not something that is done very often in the milongas where I dance normally.

Watch out, I think I may be on to something!

Just Perfect!

There is this one particular follower I get to see from time to time when I venture into the Big City.

She is always very warm and welcoming whenever she notices that I am in a Milonga where she happens to be, (I've run into her in three different states, but she is always at home no matter where she happens to be dancing tango)she makes me feel like a million bucks every time.

Her dancing is always extremely connected and it seems (to me) as if we are the only two people in the room, no matter how crowded the floor is.

Sometimes she hums or sings, most of the time her breathing and heartbeat are two more instruments to dance to.

Her curves are a joy to behold and heaven to mingle with if only for a short while.

She loves the tango at least as much as I do (a quality that is truly hard to find).

These are some of the reasons I dance Tango, all wrapped up in one very impressive package.
