THE MOMENT OF “LETTING GO”

“Letting go” is an effective strategy during the tango learning process.  
Not surprisingly, much of it requires exerting less conscious control, and letting muscle memory take over. And much of it also involves trusting ourselves and our partners. It’s where we experience that fluid, enjoyable “feeling of dancing,” as opposed to being fixated on the technical parts that the dance consists of.

But more important, “letting go” is a state of mind, where we temporarily leave behind our routine worries and anxieties from daily life. And that needs to start happening before we even step onto the dance floor.
