MuffinMaker- The tango is a difficult dance with many intricate steps. It is often very difficult for beginners to master.
However, it typically does not matter that much if you have no previous dance experience. It matters more how your body moves and if you can easily feel the rhythm of the music.
It is also very important to have a partner you connect with and are comfortable dancing with. If you are dancing with some random guy at the local tango club, you will likely feel very awkward and it will affect your ability to perform the dance.
Convince your spouse or significant other to attend tango dancing lessons with you. It will help you feel more comfortable and it is a fun activity that will likely bring you closer together.
