Anca Chereches Posted about 4 years ago Tim Ferriss: Smash fear, learn anything RE: "A male in a milonga would be sought after." I'd like to disagree on that. At a milonga, a good dancer would rather spend the night sitting at the bar than dance with a beginner. Beginners have bad technique, which leads to very uncomfortable (and thus not enjoyable) and potentially dangerous dances. There's a lot of traffic on the milonga dance floor. If your technique is not good enough to navigate, you will get pushed around and kicked a lot. Good dancers will dance with beginners at practicas, to help improve their technique, but milongas are for enjoyment and moving up the tango food chain, not practice.
