When your partner takes you to the floor, there is an expectation that you will follow. There is no foreplay of verbal back and forth. You follow. You trust. You know your place.
You cannot and must not ask questions. The movement of the body is the only way to communicate. You must know your body. You must be comfortable in your own skin. It is not about size, height, weight. It is about TANGO. You move when he moves. You surrender when he guides you.
There is no talking in TANGO. You cannot just stop and ask what is the next step.
Tango is about communicating with your body. If you are not comfortable in your own skin, tango will either get you comfortable or make you acutely aware that Tango is not for you.
I am comfortable and uncomfortable in my body. I am drawn to the passion and sensualness of Tango. I am a sensual and sexual woman. I am also very aware of the shame I carry in carrying excess weight. That is my paradox. Tango ignores weight, size, height. I do not.
You must answer your life's questions out loud before you Tango. You will get answers as you move. You have to listen and you have to be willing to hear your body.
There is no talking in Tango.
