Today’s #Tango Advice 064: Milan for Followers.
A good spot for Followers to plan their next Tango vacation is: Milano.
1.) The men dress nicely for Milongas. No. It’s true. They actually dress up for Milongas. And as has said before in Vol 3. (Truism 1096), nothing screams ‘come hither’ more to a woman than a man in a tailored suit! And in this case, usually the shoes are handmade as well.
2.) Then there’s the fact that they smell nice.
3.) They actually know how to dance musically, within the line of dance. This is floorcraft, within the construct of the music. Which usually results in dancing the shit out of a Milonga. And then there’s...
4.) They are usually exceptionally personable, and know how to treat a lady (usually). And last but not least...
5.) The food is f#cking divine!
So if #’s 1 thru 4 don’t do it for you at the very least you’ll have some amazing food that'll blow your mind! Two caveats that you need to be aware of and that’s the ‘Italian Solution’ to an embrace quandary that happens for every Lead in the world, that the Italians have solved (to a degree), and as a Follower, you should be prepared for it.
Secondly, to a lesser degree but still present, be prepared for a bit of attitude, bravado, and show off behavior now and again, but it’s all in an effort to show you off, not necessarily themselves per se. Which is to say that more than a few lessons on Adornments & Embellishments wouldn’t kill you (which is really an expression of your foundation in time to the music), and that means you really do have to know your music. #SocialTango #SocialDance #ArgentineTango #TangoDancing
