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

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

Damn tuesday 

Found an ad:

"Follow in search of a partner for the September advanced class by on Tuesdays, and practise time in my own studio the other days. "

Just what I needed! I know her, she's not the pupil next door but a tango teacher as well, even if tango is not her "major". I took a private with her two years ago. Not a pleasant memory. Old, assertive, prompt to find out and expose her partner's weaknesses. Not sure many leaders here would want to take classes with her as a follow. So I may have my chances if I applied. Sure, part of what attracts me here is that she would have to acknowledge that we're on equal terms now...
And practise time the other days of the week... just great!

Now, On the other side, before getting in touch with this prospective follower I had to consider the situation with another partner, quite the opposite. Young, easy to live with, not much better than me (used to be an intermediate, but left tango apart for one year). She made it clear in June that she wanted me as a leader for a class next season but was not yet sure of the day.

This morning she sent me a mail:
"Tuesday. And we'll see the other details together in September, ok?
Kisses.
~M"

Damn Tuesday.
