After yesterday’s work, it was time for the week’s second instalment of Tango Terra fun.
My new shoes had finally arrived, and they were absolutely gorgeous
I’d arranged to meet a friend there at 4pm so we could do some walking when the floor was empty. We duly did this, and it was wonderful! The walk still remains my absolute favourite tango movement. Give me great music, a follower with a fantastic walk and an empty floor, and I’m in heaven – all of which was present this afternoon.
Sundays are a lot quieter than Thursdays, with fewer familiar faces, but there was still plenty of opportunity to dance.
The friend in question wanted a video of herself dancing, and I shot some of her dancing with a mutual friend, and then he shot some of us dancing. They say you should never video yourself in the first two years, but I must say it looked a lot better than I expected!
I mostly danced with a handful of favourite followers, but I did dance with a few new followers. One turned out to be way above my level, but was a delight. I had one funny moment with another …
I was chatting to a friend when the music started, and it didn’t immediately grab me. When it suddenly did, I looked for a free follower and saw only three, two of whom weren’t looking around. The third was, but I wasn’t entirely sure I’d caught her eye. I nodded, and she gave a nod so imperceptible I still wasn’t sure. It was only when I stood and we walked toward each other that I was certain.
She was a lovely dancer, and I said as much in the break between the first two songs. “I’ve been trying to cabeceo you for ages,” she said! I apologised for having been oblivious to this.
Honestly, most of my Tango Terra blogs could be copy-and-pasted: fantastic music, super-relaxed atmosphere, amazing followers and wonderful dances. The Sunday ones don’t have quite the same feel as the much busier Thursday evening ones, but make up for it with more space.
Afterwards, three tango friends came round for drinks, the perfect end to a great day!
