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

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

Guinness book of records 

Monday I experimented another variation on the theme "the missing partner". My partner duly came....and left the class after ten minutes, without a word. Afterwards she explained me that she had felt hungry and gone to a restaurant she knows from the times she was leaving in the neighbourhood. I suspect the real reason is that she disliked the class. The theme was the axis/the walk, and we were doing various individual exercizes for balance, posture, breathing, body-awareness and so on. I saw she was not doing the exercizes with dedication, but only more or less faked them, like when you're in a church for a wedding and you imitate what actual, seasoned believers do. In tango she likes the milongas, being in a leader's arms, being invited, the seduction game and the provocative outfits (she's quite pretty). She can stand a class but it has to be milonga-alike somehow, with a lot of dancing. Working on one's technique? Not for her.

And this morning I received a phone call from my (missing) partner of last week's tuesday: she won't come today either.

All in all, this are five ruined classes in a row, and still counting. One because I went to the wrong place, and four because of my (so-called) partners. Do I qualify for the Guinness book?

At least you'll be remembered in years to come, unlike the rest of us anonymous tango dancers...
