I walk slowly,
I never walk backward

I walk slowly,but I never walk backward

This is a quote by Abraham Lincoln. He must have been a social dancer...
Of course this one is meant for the couple, rather then for one dancer. The flow -onda- in the dance line -ronda- keeps the salon moving in unison...

A hug is a handshake from the heart

The average length of a hug between two people is 3 seconds. But researchers have discovered something fantastic. When a hug lasts 20 seconds, there is a therapeutic effect on the body and mind.

The reason is that a sincere hug produces a hormone called "oxytocin", also known as the love hormone. This substance has many benefits in our physical and mental health, helps us, among other things, to relax, to feel safe and calm our fears and anxiety.

This wonderful calming is offered free of charge every time we have a person in our arms, who cradled a child, we cherish a dog or cat, we're dancing with our partner, the closer we get to someone or just hold the shoulders of a friend.

It Takes Three To Tango

The hidden force of the presence of at least a third person will give your tango a social context. That is why so many people love to dance in a social setting, instead of alone in their homes.

Three is also the amount of ingredients of tango: the music, the dance and the lyrics.

Three dances in a row is often the minimum we need to give the magic a chance.

Actually, during classes we sometimes use three people as a unit, to see if we can really follow and or lead ;)
