Although it’s just another month on the calendar, January is special. There’s a sense of renewal, of having a fresh start. And this is a good mindset for tango.
If we’ve recently embarked on our “tango journey,” the new year comes with a sense of excitement. There’s a lot to look forward to: More milongas, more learning, and maybe plans to attend our first festival.
If we’ve been dancing for a while, the month of January also provides a sense of reflection. We can look back on the previous year, evaluate the progress we made, and make goals to further improve.
But no matter how much experience we have, tango in January means starting the year with positive experiences. And as time goes by, we’ll find that tango isn’t just an investment of our time, but an investment in life-shaping memories.
