10 tips for dancing - and enjoying - tango in 2010

I'm not really into NYE resolutions... so here, with reference to Mr Teece's tips for life - are 10 tips that are worth thinking about ...

1. Be understanding and generous with time.
Remember how it feels when you first start to tango and take the time to make others feel welcome
2. Be forgiving of yourself and others.
We all make mistakes but turning them from molehills into mountains does no one any favours. Learn to be humble.
3. Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.
4. Persistence, persistence, persistence
5. Commit to constant improvement and quality.
6. Happiness is not based on who you danced with last, - but on relationships with people you respect and love. Similarly, it is not the end of the world if you have a night of few (or even no) dances. It is just the way it happens. Enjoy the company of those around you and make new friends.
7. Be honest and open.
8. Take good care of the ones you respect and care about.
9. Remember that it is not other people who make you angry or frustrated - you make yourself angry or frustrated!
10. Treat everyone you meet the way you would like to be treated.

What are you planning for 2010??

Mr Teece? He is the former Deputy Principal at Riverside Girls High in Sydney and his tips for life were posted on Shayne's World.
And to end the year on a bit of fun here is a video of the marvellous Eduardo Capussi and Mariana Flores dancing to La Cumparsita. When I first saw this couple in Buenos Aires it was some years ago and I was not aware of how clever they are.
Enjoy! and Happy New Year
