Teach what you know well

A quick search on the internet can reveal many dance schools (not just Tango by the way) offering all kinds of classes and seminars with exotic-sounding topics. For the unsuspecting student – mostly the relatively new people initiated into the dance – such options are mind-boggling.

Personally, I follow a simple rule-of-thumb:

If a teacher can’t dance something on a regular basis, most likely he/she will not be able to do a good job of teaching it, no matter how good the teaching credentials.

The analogy is very much like having someone “cramming” by reviewing videos or secret manuals and then rolling up to the class half an hour later to regurgitate some rote-learned skills AND expect to get paid!?!? I mean, I’d rather look at those videos myself and save some trouble… 🙂
