Dance allows you to choose something life does not give you automatically.  A dancer can choose to be beautiful and have a beautiful soul.  But that offered choice to too often not taken.
Being in awe of beauty seems to be uniquely human. Animals are often better than we are for being in the present, being in thier bodies. But awe? This is something that knocks the air out of us. We are speechless. Moved...

Dance as if were the End of the World.  That is the Rapture.

Find a diversity in movement.  Dance is the most profound, but only one of the Eight Elements of Movement.

A cabeceo from Mars, being accepted by a humble tanguera's mirada Why dance with Mars, the God of War, when you can dance in the warm embrace with a mortal from Venus or Mr. Down-to-Earth? Why? Because Mars is a god, that's...

Without saying a word, learn to understand the two dominant languages of your dance partner.  First, know your own two "languages" of affection.  #tango-therapist

Something I am using with combat veterans in therapy--resiliency movement for PTSD.  I ask:  "What is your resiliency IQ?" When it comes to movement the equation is 8 x 3. Eight Elements of Movement practiced tactically (basic survival or physical health), strategically (long-term well-being behaviors) and then the Eight Elements as spiritual practice (embodiment of nowness as expressed in the Eight Elements of Movement).  Dance is the pinnacle of resiliency movements, but still just one of the eight.
A resiliency walk on a sacred labyrinth, a holy path or in a tango embrace leads to the same place: Psychological well-being. Dancers often have the sense that dance is the highest pinnacle of movement. I have no doubt that...

I recognize 8 Elements of Movement, but only dance symbolically uses all the others to unify them with music.
So why are you drawn to dance? There is a good chance that you have realized that you need music and dance in your life. Perhaps you feel that music and dance helps to "process" all the difficult things you have experienced...

If you you want to visit Tango Cloud Nine more often, then pay attention to how well a person hears and responds to the music. Somatically responding to music is truly dancing--and especially in an improvisational dance l...

Please put in your application for being an ambassador.  We don't need any more followers.
For me listening to the music, the true leader in tango, and actively guiding a woman at a milonga is one of the most enjoyable things I have ever experienced in my life. Dancing can create this sense of safety and peace that...

For the first time, I understand better why some prefer to break the warm embrace.  This "meditation" on the 5 languages of tango transformed my dance.  Without a word being spoken, I believe anyone can perceive the two dominant languages their partner "speaks" in one tanda.  #tango-therapist

Consider dance as a spiritual practice to know yourself better but also to know each person with whom you dance.  Get a sense of their "love languages" just by the way they dance.

Bragging rights
I have no right to brag but much for which to be humble. I had nothing to do with being raised in a country that is giving its best try at the Rule of Law, nor my wonderful parents and great siblings. I did not choose humble parents who supported me in music and in everything I tried to do in higher education. Much of this start in life allowed many other wonderful things to happen, but I am only humbled by the great start I was given in life.

Came to NTB with a referral from a local shop. They knew that there was a referral but still tried to take business from the referring shop--suggesting to do things I planned to do the next day with my mechanic. That is unfair business, but the other thing, is the break job NTB said I needed was quoted as being $150 more than my mechanic offered. After the inspection, my mechanic said I did not even need breaks. I saved over $500 with tax. And the tires? When I came in, I was told I didn't need tires. They found a small nail, but suggested new tires. I will never go back.d

This is where residents of Strasbourg, France get married, whether richer or poorer, in health or in sickness--all have a beautiful palace in which they must get married in order to be legally wed. The Square (Place) Broglie is also the home of the city Opera House. I love Europe and this city!
