In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’sthere are few.-Shunryu Suz

For beginner tango dancers, there are many possibilities to explore and learn, and they can benefit from having an open mind and trying different styles, techniques, and musical interpretations. On the other hand, more experienced dancers may fall into the trap of relying on what they already know and becoming limited in their approach to the dance.

Achieving and maintaining a beginner's mind in tango dance requires a conscious effort to let go of preconceptions and expectations about the dance. One way to do this is by approaching each dance as a new experience, rather than relying on past experiences and routines. It also involves being open to learning from others, regardless of their level of experience, and being willing to try new things and take risks on the dance floor.

Practicing mindfulness and being present in the moment can also help cultivate a beginner's mind in tango. By focusing on the present, rather than dwelling on the past or worrying about the future, dancers can better connect with their partner and the music, and allow their intuition to guide their movements.

Finally, it's important to remember that a beginner's mind is not a static state but rather a continuous process of learning and growth. Even as dancers gain more experience and expertise, they can continue to approach tango with curiosity, openness, and a willingness to explore new possibilities.
