In an effort to get good at tango, we bring the type of work ethic to our lessons that we also exhibit while at work or school. This makes sense, and is largely positive. But in the long run, relying only on our work ethic in order to improve our dancing is counterproductive. It turns tango into a chore. Although dancing is challenging, it’s not supposed to be drudgery!
Too often, we hold back on embracing tango with passion. We associate passion with unpredictability, and perhaps we’re afraid it might somehow make us undisciplined.
But we need passion in order to dance well, and it’s important to be mindful of the reasons why tango makes us happy. Passion drives us to do the hard work without making it feel like work.
