Ten Things You Will Probably Not Overhear at Your Milonga.

1. "These Comme il Fauts are okay, I guess - do you have anything less flashy?"

2. "You know, I really enjoy dancing with beginners."

3. "Musical leads scare me."

4. "I don't know - Biagi just doesn't move me like Tanturi does. I'll sit this one out."

5. "This line of dance is looking SHARP!"

6. "I don't know - she's a little TOO thin."

7. "When a guy leads that sixth gancho in a row, my heart just melts!"

8. "I prefer a woman with a really stoney embrace."

9. "There's not enough room on the dance floor - let's save the nuevo for later."

10. "Let's just dance."

I actually do kind of like dancing with beginners. :-) But I LOVE that list!

David said...

Great list La P;)

Like tina I too love dancing with beginners - I actually go to our classes early so I can do the beginners class if the numbers aren't even. Helping them get the feel of Tango without turning into robots is just wonderful. I guess it's harder for followers to help leaders but they can.

Hm - I've actually heard 1,2,4,5,6,9 and 10. And that more than once.
