There’s no moment when we wake up and just feel “advanced.” Moving up in tango skill level isn’t like transitioning from one school grade to the next. And there’s no diploma or piece of paper that officially gives us the title of advanced dancer.
Since the process of improving seems so gradual, in time we may be considered high level even if we don’t realize it. Sometimes, it’s better not to be 100% sure.
When the desire to discover what we don’t yet know becomes more important than the desire to be labeled as an advanced dancer, we’re on the right track.
