I started dancing Argentine tango 13-14 years ago. It didn't seduce me immediately, however, as it was foreign to my background in ballroom dance. It was, frankly- work. I practiced tango walk while walking my dog, in grocery stores and parking lots. My refrigerator was my partner as I practiced my ochos. Then one day, that magical dance- effortless, infinitely connected and relaxed- happened, and I was hooked.
Like a lab rat running a maze chasing cheese, I hungrily pursued tango magic with lessons, practice and travel. I still do, and I plan to continue for as long as I am able.
My work as a nurse in the army reserves taught me the benefit of perseverance and delayed gratification. Tango is well worth this effort.
Marcy has been part of the Tango and I team since 2013, she is on the "tango fast track". Curious what the Fast Track is? ask her about it!
