KEEPING THINGS FRESH

Things I’ve heard from enthusiastic students:

“Tango is like Tai Chi in that…”
“Tango reminds me of golf because you also have to…”
“In martial arts, like tango, you have to…”
“I read this book on mindfulness, and it made me think of tango because…”

It’s fascinating how people connect tango with a lot of other activities, philosophies, and ideas. Have you done this yourself? If you find yourself connecting tango to seemingly unrelated subjects, it does not mean you’re weird.

Let your brain explore those avenues of thinking. Maybe you’ll be way off, or perhaps you’ll figure out a another way of learning that works for you.

Approaching tango from another perspective helps keep it fresh. It’s good exercise for the brain, and just as useful as learning new steps.
