A CONVERSATION YOU DON’T NEED TO CONTROL

Don’t you hate talking to people who always feel the need to dominate the conversation? Or with those who shout you down at the first sign of disagreement?

In Tango, neither the leader nor follower should be trying to dominate the dance any more than we should try controlling a verbal conversation.

It’s okay for leaders to tango “their” way and to get the dance started, but it’s also vital to leave room for followers to add their unique touch to the mix. The dance isn’t fulfilling unless both dancers are equally participating, or physically “listening” to each other. Even if your dance styles don’t mesh, it’s best to at least grant the courtesy of respectful communication.
