Women: Wash your hair before you Tango.
Many women have long hair and that means there’s a lot of hair smelling good… or bad. If that hair hasn’t been washed the day you are tangoing or if it has been but it’s been at the gym, that’s a lot of hair giving off a lot of nasty fumes right into the nostrils of the men you are dancing with.
Please smell good. Wear deodorant, wear clean clothes, shower, AND wash your hair. Men, that includes you too.
Men: After going to the bathroom and touching your penises, please wash your hands!?
Jorge has bore witness to many bathroom atrocities, however, he is happy to report that most of these atrocities have happened outside of North America (hallelujah)! Believe it or not, Buenos Aires has had the most male culprits leaving toilets without sterilizing their hands. Yes, this is quite humourous coming from the land of Tango “codigos”.
If you are asking a woman to dance for the first time, do NOT invite her for a tanda of milonga (unless this is somehow your specialty and you’re amazing at it) .
