Today's #Tango Thought 007: Like, Talent, & Skill. 

Like knows like.

Talent knows talent.

Skill recognizes skill.

The reverse can not be said of the unskilled recognizing the skilled. Not quite in the same way.

Certainly people recognize the intricate, and the execution. But generally they do not and can not recognize: 1.) the economy of movement. 2.) the ease of the embrace. 3.) the effortless skill. 4.) the fluidity and 'smoothness' that is hard fought, honed, and practiced.

Why ?

Because it's a level of deftness that is unknown to them. It's akin to the difference between a Zinfandel, a Pinot, and Pinot from a specific year. You know they're all wines but your pallet is not properly trained to distinguish the differences between them. You must be trained to taste them, or from a tango perspective, trained to feel these things.  #SocialTango #TangoDancing #SocialDancing #SocialDance #ArgentineTango
