My First Milonga

For those of you who think that a Milonga is some form of strange animal, like I did, its not. All my worries that this milonga thing would need cleaning, feeding, regular exercise etc. were wrong. It turned out that a milonga is just the term for a place or an event where tango is danced. Yesterday evening, at the l'Isle Adam Band Club in Rabat I attended my first milonga. And so there i was, doing my first tango steps...... it was my equivalent of Disney's Fantasia, where hippos are dancing ballet. My wife was much better though. She was really good, especially when dancing with others. The only problem she had was psychological, she was finding it difficult to accept that i had to lead!!!!

But it was an enjoyable experience and will go again for sure.

She was not really good - but great! And letting others lead can be very dangerous... I'm sure the other ladies out there can appreciate this!!! Less than a Hippo, more like a big clumsy Bear! xxx

yep the first milonga was great albeit the strange feeling of being led so agree with your wife - damn at first it was difficult to let go until i did...then again it felt good to relax and being pushed from one end of the room to the other (!) - thanks to dwardu, nathalie, gordon and claudia for their patience and support :)
