Learning tango requires a willingness to experiment. Its improvisational nature means we’ll discover a lot of figures through intentional practice, or by accident.
With this dance, we should expect plenty of surprises. How does that make us feel? Do we anticipate these surprises as we would a creepy-looking jack-in-the-box that might pop up any second and frighten us? Or instead, do we look forward to them as we would a wrapped birthday present containing a gift that’s sure to delight us?
In tango, it’s our attitude towards the unexpected that matters, not the nature of the surprise itself.
