To dance Argentine tango in and around Tucson, it will help if you take tango classes in Tucson. People tend to dance the most with those they study and practice with. To get the most from any dance class or milonga (the actual dancing event) you will want the proper attire. At the beginning almost anything goes, but as one progresses the more important attire and shoes become.
- Good comfortable shoes with a sole that allows you to slide along a wood floor (non-sticky):
Backless shoes and flip flops are not good for walking backwards. Big bulky tennis shoes are not conducive to several of the techniques required to dance tango. The best shoes are actually dance shoes. You can find dance shoes on line from a number of sites, even Amazon has dance shoes for men and women.
- Loose fitting clothes you can move in comfortably. Skirts or dresses that allow youto take large steps and not confine your knees.
- Remember: The people you meet in tango classes in Tucson just might become your good friends. Be kind, be forgiving. Set your ego aside. DO NOT worry about who is right or wrong, rather, focus on your own learning process and apply your learning and techniques to the best of your own personal ability and let others learn at their own pace. There is no hurry, it is a journey not a destination. In the end tango is a negotiation. We are moving and allow the other to move, which means we are making space and accommodating our partner at all times. Tango is not about choreography once you are moving with a partner, it is about where he or she is going. Like good repartee, it requires you to listen.
