Hola, and thank you for stopping by to visit my blog about my passion – tango dancing! My name is Carlos, and when it comes to getting regular exercise and keeping fit, I have not always been the most dedicated individual. Like many people, I struggled to find the time to exercise, but my lack of physical activity did not seem to be terribly problematic to me until fairly recently. After turning 50, I started to notice a definite downturn in my sense of well-being, and I resolved to take decisive action to turn things around.
I knew that strenuous activities such as running or weight lifting probably were not my cup of tea, so I began to search for something different. The key was to find an endeavor able to get my heart pumping and my muscles moving, but also something I could see myself doing for the long haul.
A friend of mine suggested I enroll in a community-based dance school near my home. They offered all sorts of options, but tango dancing immediately caught my eye. A little sheepish at first, it only took a class or two before I was the most enthusiastic dancer in the room.
Since then, I have become a true tango dancing devotee and do not see myself stopping. I encourage everyone my age to give the tango some serious consideration. The health benefits and the mental lift dancing can provide simply cannot be beat.
I have always been interested in dance of all sorts. However, recently, I have noticed that tango seems to be a lot more popular than it has been for the past few decades. It may be due to all of the dancing shows that are on television today, but I would now like to learn more about it.
Not only does the history of tango dancing interest me, but I would like to learn more about taking classes so that my wife and I can really enjoy all that a lesson to two can offer. Are there normally regular tango dancing classes that you can find in your local area? If so, is the best way to find them simply calling some of the local dance studios? I would just like to be sure that we can get into some sort of a beginner class so that we can learn the basics and maybe even have a better understanding of some of the history behind this rich, interesting form of dance.
I have heard that there are a wide range of tango styles that one can learn, so the more information that I can get on tango dancing course, the better!
