The evening started with a class on Walz with Jose Halfon and Virginia Cutillo, my favorite teachers. It is amazing to see Vicky in top form again after having her twins and having so little sleep. As usual , their class was fantastic. I have yet to find teachers that teach so systematically ,with such depth and clarity. So many epiphanies! On Thursday I went back to Escuela Argentina de Tango for the first time in many years. It was a place that frequented in 2008. The lesson with the well-known and beautful teacher was fun. But it really struck me that many good dancers cannot teach well, that teaching itself is a gift which is as important as being a good dancer.
Dancing at Milonga 10, I enjoyed feeling so many different leads, from experienced to relatively beginners. Nice connections, all of them. Walking towards my bus stop at 3 am I was delighted to find a heladeria open and packed with people. The lemon sorbet was melting in my hands as I ate it...... mmmmmmm
Here is a video of the lesson summary with Jose and Vicky.... and of MIlonga 10
