Follower Versus Leader

Food for thought from Kim Benitez.

In my first few years of studying tango, I often felt that the role of the follower was overlooked in many of the group classes I took. The emphasis of the class was very much what the leader should do, with perhaps the occasional nod towards the follower.

 

I would love to do the follower part but there are never enough men. Maybe in time I will

To video or not to video…

This is a really good post by Kim Benitiz. She visited us at our Cork Tango Festival and I was lucky enough to dance with her. I knew I feel the same way. But I hated that so much watching back on a performance. You can check it out here.

I particularly like:

No one is born being able to dance – everyone has to start somewhere.

Food for thought, no?

If you happen to be in London

One of our international couples, who attended our festival recently, put on a improvised display of vals over in London. Well, one half of them at least. Just some playful tango to vals over in London. Witness it below if interested.

It is definitely of interest 😉

As the month of October draws to a close if you turn up as a couple there is a special offer when you can pay per person 50 EUR. The offer is gone after this round of classes. It is a new six week course for beginners so better hurry up!
