Our tango will evolve over time. Dance figures we were once afraid of trying might now be among our favorites. There was a time when we were intimidated by the faster pace of milonga, but perhaps now we look forward to it. We might now love a song that we hated at first.
Other changes are inevitable as well. Sometimes venues close or change. Friends come and go. Technological advances disrupt what was once familiar. Sometimes we’re the ones facilitating the change, and other times we’re caught up in the middle of it.
Nothing about tango – or anything else in life – stands still for too long. Moving forward – either with our dance skills or with the changes around us – can be uncomfortable at first. But it’s the only direction we can go.
But don’t be afraid. Tango has endured much over the past century. We will, too.
