Re: Looking for a dancing partner for tango

Just go to the tango school of your choice and register for a course.

Most schools have more gals than guys applying so they'll be more than happy to accomodate you.

Don't laugh. This happens more than you think.
Once dancers have reached a certain level of geekiness they do get into this type of thing.

i was just trying to freak him out. about a year ago, i did get roped into a tango course (a group of friends were going and they needed 1 extra guy). one time, 2 of the girls didn't make it and i ended up dancing with my mate. was a bit weird at first, but in the end, we could dance better than with our original partners and we always teased our partners about it afterwards

We can go to Silbando (170 CHF, Wed. or Tu.) or to Quartierszentrum Aussersihl (20 CHF per lesson at Tu.).

Hope you find something interesting.
Cheers,
Christopher

Re: Looking for a dancing partner for tango

Well, I can tell you that down here in the land of tango it's fine if you dance two boys or two girls together if there isn't an even split. In fact, it's encouraged the guys know both the girl role & the guy role. It makes them better dancers.

What I would say though if that guys should always JUST GO to the classes. There are always more girls than guys.

Go! Have fun!
