We’ll all discover steps that we’re good at. It’s definitely good to “specialize” in certain tango figures, because it gives personality to our dancing. It also helps build confidence as we become more experienced.

But there comes a point when our strengths become the very things that hold us back. Our expertise with certain figures or step combinations can become predictable and boring. So every once in a while, we need to shake things up. To expand our dancing knowledge, we have to seek learning experiences that might make us feel like beginners again.

It’s uncomfortable and even requires some pride-swallowing, but this isn’t just about learning new stuff. Doing this keeps the dance feeling exciting and new.
