Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another

Updated: Apr 11, 2023

Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another.

Dancing with your feet is different from dancing with your heart. This quote from an unknown author says what tango is all about and what the Tango Zen principles are all about.

Many people think that the steps and technique are the most important parts of tango. But tango is much more than that in real life. It is a dance of feeling and connection, where two people come together to make something beautiful and meaningful. Tango is more than just a dance—it's way of life that requires us to be fully present and connected to our partner, the music, and ourselves.

As we dance tango, we are reminded to let go of our ego and allow ourselves to be vulnerable, open and authentic. We learn to listen to our partner's movements, to feel their energy, and to respond to them in a way that creates harmony on the dance floor. This is the beauty of dancing with the heart. It allows us to connect on a deeper level and create a truly unique and memorable experience.

When we dance with our hearts, we're not just doing steps; we're making a story, a journey that we share with our partner. Through the music and the way we move, we show how we feel, what makes us happy, what makes us sad, and what we want. We give ourselves permission to be fully in the moment and enjoy the beauty of the dance.

So, let's keep in mind that tango isn't just about moving your feet; it's also about moving your heart. Let's embrace the Tango Zen principles of connection, vulnerability, and authenticity and let the dance floor be a place where we have a meaningful and unforgettable experience.

As we continue on our tango journey, may we always remember the power and beauty of dancing with the heart, and may we continue to connect and share our passion with others through this amazing dance.
