The 2-Week BA Adventure

Don’t get us wrong, we are not insulting people’s desire to Tango in Buenos Aires.  We are not insulting the fact that two weeks is the longest amount of time one can manage to spend here.  However…

There are exceptions, but what Tango dancer believes that coming here for two or three weeks is going to further their knowledge of the dance (especially if this is their first time here)?  Two to three weeks of dancing at milongas, and taking group lessons and private lessons cannot even begin to scratch the surface of what Tango is here. Although, so many people come here with no intention of even trying to learn a thing.  They are blissfully happy to continue their North American version of tango – completely free of the culture that makes up this dance.

We have been here two months now.  It took us a full month just to figure out which milongas and classes we enjoy and this past month has only begun to alter (although quite dramatically) our Tango.  Even after having this wonderful opportunity to spend eight months here, we don’t believe we would ever return for anything less than four weeks.  We simply don’t see the point.  Then again, we are travellers-at-heart and we are not very big fans of any 2-week holidays.

About Movement Invites Movement

We are relatively young Argentine Tango dancers and teachers who are married both to each other and the dance. We truly found Tango after making an 8-month Tango pilgrimage to Buenos Aires and we are using this blog to share our thoughts and feelings about our Tango experiences. We are not aspiring authors and our writing skills are questionable, but we write our truth. View all posts by Movement Invites Movement
