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

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

Partnerless 

During the long in-between time between the beginning of this new tango season and the end of the previous one,
a handful of ladies kindly agreed to be my partner for one or the other class. (Ok, not kindly; indeed it required long negociations, that took an end only when they realized they would not find another partner.)
And so, I was considering the future series of classes with a reasonable optimism. Maybe, unlike last year, I would not have to dance with the teacher (all the most unpleasant when the teacher is a male).

Yet, when the classes actually began a few days ago, it appeared that:

-) Fab is currently moving to another flat that she just bought, and all her spare time for the weeks to come will be spent carrying furniture.
-) Dolly has been sent by her boss to a distant (400 miles to the north) town where she is likely to stay for about two months.
-) Maria is finalizing a kind of Ph.D focused on David Hume's work and is too busy to do any other activity. Hume used to philosophize about empirism, which is somehow funny, as because of him my own empirism
of tango this season is endangered.
-) Tania has just found a part-time job to finance her studies. Or what she thought was a part-time job. Yet Mc Donald's well-known motto is "twice the work, half the pay", and so just surviving means she has to work so hard that she has neither time nor energy left for tango.

So, without any partner for the classes, this season won't be as rosy as it was supposed to be. It seems I'm stuck at Intermediate level. Who knows, maybe I'll even regress to beginner.
