Tango: my life as a not-so-good leader

And you thought that YOU were the worst dancer in the world ?

Deep thoughts

From Fernando and Vilma’s (teachers in Buenos Aires) website:

When you are having a bad day, a good tango will make you realise that there are always worse days.
When you are sad, a good tango - a really sad one, will make you cry and you’ll feel better.
When your heart is breaking, a good tango will make you feel that your pain is not important.
When you are in a bad mood, a good tango will make you forget everything - even your bad mood.
When you are lonely, a good tango will make you want to embrace someone - a future lover, a friend, or an enemy.
When you are tired, a good tango will get your blood flowing.
When you are afraid, a good tango will make you feel brave, tough or triumphant.
When you are hungry, have a good asado with wine: or perhaps pizza and empanadas.


This are Fernando & Vilma's nice thoughts. They are outstanding dancers. Good tangos are as natural for them as smiles for a baby. Ok, but what when you're bad ? What when you're a dancer like you and me? (ok, like me...)

Well, here it goes:
When you are having a bad day, a bad tango will make you realise that a bad day can always get worse.
When you are sad, a bad tango - a really bad one, will make you know why you're sad.
When your heart is breaking, a bad tango can't make you feel more unhappy anyway, so why should you just sit?
When you are in a bad mood, a bad tango will put your partner in a bad mood too. Dance after dance the bad mood will propagate within the milonga like a virus. Why should all these people be happy when you're in a bad mood?
When you are lonely, a bad tango is a no-risk thing. Your girfriend won't leave you because you're a bad dancer: you don't have a girlfriend.
When you are tired, a bad tango will make you think "Time to go home and have some sleep".
When you are afraid, a bad tango will make everybody afraid too: leaders to be bumped into, ladies to be invited by you.
When you are hungry, have a good asado with wine; or perhaps pizza and empanadas. And a beer, buddies, and a beer...
