When to ask for a dance

In case you haven’t already seen this, Seattle lindy/swing instructor Rebecca Brightly, author of Dance World Takeover, last week posted an awesome flowchart that diagrams the many decisions that should go into answering the question “Should you ask them to dance?”

Amazing how applicable this is to tango as well — just pencil in for the last step “… with your eyes and a nod of your head!” and you’ve got the tango cabeceo down pat!

  1. One of the great things about tango is that we are all, to varying degrees, simultaneously both lead and follow. Like the cliche about tango, the tango cabeceo takes two to agree that you both want to dance with each other at that time.

  2. Haha, I like the first question in the chart:

    – “Are you remotely creepy”?
    – “Yes”
    – “Go home”

    Everything else is too complicated.
