“I have a family, children, work. Why should I tango? - about the same question you could ask me. I will answer this way: a modern adult woman, even a very successful in her career and happy in her personal life, is not averse to breaking away from everyday life. Many are tired of monotonous feasts, and lazy beach holidays or exhausting classes in a fitness club do not bring rest to the soul. In the evenings, after work, the soul asks for games, romance, flight. And so more and more adult women, happy in family life, rush to the milongas for thrills - parties where they dance the Argentine tango.
Tango, like an unexpected love affair, can completely change you both externally and internally in a few months. Most come to class hunched over, chronically tired and confident that all the most interesting things in life have already happened. In the very first classes, not to mention the milongas, these people are gently helped to remember that they are men and women. The distribution of roles here is very clear. A man always invites to dance, a woman has only a choice: to refuse or to agree. In dance, the man always leads, the woman follows. Moreover, in order for the dance to work out, She must completely trust Him - many partners even dance with their eyes closed. In tango, a man and a woman get the sensations that are so lacking in everyday life. These rules affect everything else: the manner of communication, the style of clothing and, of course, body movements. That is why rookie tangers sooner or later hear a similar question from friends or work colleagues: “Are you in love? You are unrecognizable, you just glow!”
Dancing people easily get rid of old psychological clamps and acquire exquisite, but at the same time very natural, natural grace. Tango helps you rediscover yourself, renew yourself, but at the same time preserve and express your strengths. Each partner and partner has his own, unique style, his own understanding of music, his own combination of movements. At the milongas there is a constant exchange of energies. And all thanks to the same wise rules: tango is a social dance, where it is considered good form to change partners every four dances, because it is a way of communication, an opportunity to share your emotions and feelings without saying a word.
The game is exciting, and the desire to find out where these amazing rules come from, and who these people are nearby, ready to play the same game as you yourself, is growing stronger. Moreover, the Argentine tango has its own ideology, based on a rich and unique history, somewhere piquant, and somewhere very dramatic. And "initiates in tango" eagerly study everything related to their favorite hobby, immerse themselves in this subculture, enjoying communication with people as enthusiastic as they are. And after some time, each finds an answer to the question of outsiders: “What is wrong with you? You love?" - "Yes, I'm having an affair with Tango!"
