Our best tango effort…
It’s not like currency that can be saved, and then “spent” for a special occasion. The greatest amount of excellence we can muster shouldn’t be reserved only for milongas, our favorite dance partners, or when we’re wearing our favorite outfits or shoes.
We can’t just decide during one particular tanda to put forth extra effort, and expect tango excellence to simply materialize.
We’ve all experienced those magical evenings when our tango felt so good, and that we were really in a flow. Those moments of brilliance may feel spontaneous, but they aren’t. They reflect hours of constant, consistent effort. Dancing is much more enjoyable when being at our best is an unconscious habit.
