    Oh, we can agree on that.

    However a very high proportion of 'tango teachers' come from the performance or competitive world. What they peddle (and it isn't usually really teaching - too often they have no obvious aptitude or training for that) is of little or no use to the typical social dancer (ie most of us); and many find that if they want to start participating in their local tango dance community, they have to unlearn all those stupid moves and choreography, and to discover the dance from scratch.

    Far removed from the idea of equipping students with the skills necessary for them to discover and develop their own style of dance, too much mediocre teaching is about a hard sell for the teachers' chosen style - dance like me, decorate like me, look like me, dress like me, talk the faux-tango talk like me, want to be me, keep coming, keep paying your $$$ -learn the only and true tango: mine.

    I'm not arguing too much with this post, however there are plenty of lousy teachers who aren't performers, so I don't look at whether they perform, or not, as a key deciding factor. What I really want to know if whether they can teach me something that I'm interested in. Basically that means, (1) they have useful information, & (2) they know how to present / communicate it to me.

    For me, a key thing to use in judging a teacher who came from the performance / competitive arena, is whether they also dance well at milongas (where "well" is whatever criteria that is important to you). If the answer is yes, then it is worth taking a chance (to find out if they can communicate it in a way you can process). BTW, another criteria I use (for all female teachers), is how do I like dancing with them, and is their embrace compatible with mine. If the answer is no, then they do not pass GO.

    I've (apparently) been very fortunate to have some teachers who have come from the performance field, who do dance at milongas, and BTW the woman has a wonderful, close embrace.

    To be clear, I don't agree 100% with any one person, as I pick and choose which things like, and what I think works for me. However, I have seen some value in getting pushed out of my comfort level in classes, as I've found that striving to do really difficult movements, does make me better at the more limited steps I do at milongas.

    The Song is Nada Mas. It might be a late D'Arienzo version, but I'm not sure about that.

    It is indeed D'Arienzo (with Mercedes Serrano) from the early 70's (I have it listed between '71 and '73).
