Had an unusual experience a couple of months ago.
Despite the extremely slow start to the night – it seems people are choosing to arrive later and later for the week-night milongas – I still ended up having a good night of dancing. Halfway through the night, since I am always trying to adopt the notion of “free-ness” and completely “going with the follower” these days, small matters like feet placement, or passing/closing of feet were thrown out the window for the night. However, after quite a few dances, I was suddenly worried that my dancing might be getting a little “messy”!? When I commented to a friend, I was pleasantly surprised by her reply. Apparently my dancing from time to time reminded her of another friend who danced a “milonguero” style, which was a little puzzling initially because during the recent trip to Buenos Aires I had taken only a single private class with a recognised milonguero.
Well, I guess it’s just one of those subtle transformations that people can experience after a trip to Buenos Aires? Nevertheless, I did enjoy myself that night. 🙂
