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

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

Gustavo and me 

One of my dreams as a A.T. student (not only mine, I bet) is to take classes with Gustavo Naveira, the man who, together with Fabian, re-invented the teaching of A.T.
Bad luck has it that he stopped touring abroad after 2003, which is more or less when I became interested in the dance. Since then, his web site keeps displaying a deceptive note, with only the years changed every January.

This was the 2004 note:

NOTE

Gustavo and Giselle will take a rest from their travelling during year 2004. Within this period they will keep their activities as dancers and teachers only in Buenos Aires. They will restart the usual international turns in 2005.



And here is the current note:

NOTE

Gustavo and Giselle will take a rest from their travelling during the whole 2005 y 2006. Within this period they will keep their activities as dancers and teachers only in Buenos Aires. They will restart the usual international turns in 2007.


Obviously he'll never quit Buenos-Aires any more now, as he's only getting older as time goes by. How about my going to Buenos-Aires then, and attend one of his seminars? Well, first Gustavo clearly insists that his classes are not for everybody:


We want to stress that these programs are pre-designed for advanced dancers


But the main concern is that you have to be in couple. I'm already finding it hard to get a partner for mere weekly classes, so finding one lady ready to spend megabucks for the dubious privilege of being my partner in an A.T camp....Eek!
