Tango newbies, are faulty assumptions stopping you from taking your first tango lesson?

From my experience of teaching tango for over 18 years - these are the most common myths people have about tango...

1. It's full of complicated choreographies.
2. It's a ‘macho’ dance, with men leading and women following submissively.
3. It's a dance you have to start young (with all its kicks and flicks)
4. It's a very serious and melancholic dance.
5. It's “just a dance”.
6. It's a sensual, erotic dance (with shades of S & M)
7. It's that dance where the woman wears fishnets and a red dress (with optional red rose between the teeth) and the man a black suit. 
8. It requires a partner to learn how to dance.

Absolutely none of the above are true!

These and other 'alternative facts' about tango are debunked in the following article by the London based-tango school Tango Space10 Tango Myths Busted -   Click on the link for the article.

Thank you Tango Space for your work in revealing the true tango - the tango that aficionados all over the world are so passionate about!
