Injuries and tango
Dancers commonly have injuries. I remember when my oldest child was a studying classical ballet full time and one of the tango teachers asked him about injury. My son replied: "we all have injuries we just have to learn to cope with them and keep on dancing". Easier to do when you are young, but you can still aggravate the injury to the point where it becomes a major problem.
Ballet dancers feet commonly suffer, women more so than men. I think the same can be said for tangueras and I have had my share of foot problems, but this is a hip problem, which I discover is also a common injury for dancers!
So I am resigned to taking the advice of my physiotherapist, sitting on the sidelines and following his guidelines for strengthening exercises...I (we) are hoping our absence is short!
