Free-flowing vs controlled movement
Conscious choreography vs intuition
Matching our steps to music vs “feeling” it
Self-aware execution of technique vs “just knowing” when/where to step
There’s a perfect balance point between each of these, and that’s when tango feels great.
For all students of tango, regardless of how many classes or workshops we’ve taken, getting there is a process of trial and error.
Some days it’s hard, on others it’s not.
But it’s attainable, it keeps us coming back, and it never gets old.
