Dear Tango Tia: Every teacher I’ve taken lessons from tells me something different. One says knees bent, another not, one says lead with the toe another says with the heel, and on and on. How Do I Know Which is Right?
Dear How Do I Know: You don’t. And won’t for a while but will gradually sort things out and discover what makes sense and feels right for you. It will likely be an assortment of information, some from this one, some from another, etc. Beware of becoming overwhelmed. Having too much information backfires. Select one or two favorite teachers whose style of teaching (and dancing) you like and spend a majority of your time with them. You can always branch out later.
