Productive questions


La Gata: “Why is this leader not dancing with me?”

El Perro: “Let’s ask something more productive:

1) Which leaders DO feel like dancing at the moment?

2) How to send an effective mirada?

Enjoy the night!”


Tanda is not marriage


La Gata: “I don’t like that leader’s hair, sense of humor, ears, car, nose, perfume, teeth, height, weight, shirt…”

El Perro: “C’mon, La Gata, you’re NOT about to marry him… You can handle 12 min of amazing tango music with someone who is willing to dance with you :):):).”


Phenomenal Memory


Leader Who Remembers Everything: “That follower refused to dance with me 65 years ago. I will NEVER attempt to ask her to dance again!!!”

El Perro Milonguero: “WOW! I wish all of us wщгдв keep such sharp memory at THAT age!”


Have you ever gave up on asking someone to dance just because they refused once? Any reasons why?

Excuses Excuses


The Exhausted Follower: “I was free that evening, but I did not come to practica because no one I knew was planning to go.”

El Perro Milonguero: “May I suggest that you use a more creative excuse next time, please :):):). Or just be honest and tell us that you were too exhausted after work. Please, take care of yourself and come next time! :)”


We have multiple jobs, busy schedules and it’s hard to make time for practicas. Do you make any excuses when you miss milongas or practicas?

Wasted Talent


The Forensically Talented Follower: “So… I will try to dance with that leader while his girlfriend is sitting out a tanda, and then she’ll thing that ….. …. …. , and he’ll think that ….. ….. ….., and the rest of the people will think that …. …. ….”

El Perro Milonguero: “WOW! These derivations rather belong to a forensics department! Please relax and enjoy the dance!”


Have you ever found yourself overthinking everything at a milonga?
