Terror of the Tango

Terror of the Tango

The tango can be far more dangerous than you might think thanks to intertwined legs. I can't tell you the number of people who went down.

Hiding

There are some dances I really hated doing. I wasn't above hiding to escape a partner for them.

One of my favorite ways to practice (which is great for balance) was to dance without a partner.

The Rack

I often felt this was what my teacher wanted to do to me.
 

Music

It was always rather amazing to me how much teachers would fight over what music got played next.

I was always amazing how thirsty you could get from dancing.

Knee Spins

Knee Spins

I sometimes suspected an ulterior motive with spins.
 

The Mirror

The Mirror

Other than waxed floors (which took out more than one dancer), the mirror was dangerous. There was more than one collision with it.
 

The Pole

The Mirror

Group classes could be dangerous if you didn't watch where you were backing into. The pole in the middle of the room took out more than one unwary soul.
