A tongue in cheek message to our lovely tango teachers
1. Please prepare the lesson ahead. We get anxious when we see you trying out a new routine in front of us.
2. Better still advertise what you are going to teach in advance and the level it is aimed at. (We’re more likely to come that way).
3. Try to balance out follower & leader numbers. If people let you down give them a hard time.
4. If numbers are uneven please remember we’re totally incapable of moving on to other dancers unless you tell us to do so. Treat us like children.
5. Get stuck in. We expect you to ignore everybody else and dance with us if we are having trouble.
6. Always provide a demonstration of what we learnt, at the end of the lesson. Keep it simple – one untaught step will cause utter confusion amongst the unimaginative of us.
7. Don’t be too ambitious. Some of us have pitiful muscle memory. Less may be more.
8. Be encouraging. We are all incredibly sensitive!
9. Make a note of what you teach, so when you see us next time you’ll have some idea of the step we’re trying to discuss.
10. Expect married couples to be arguing most of the time. It’s nothing personal!
