Why should we accept the statement which is tumbling around and saying that you need to
GET tango RIGHT from the BEGINNING.
When I started to learn tango I had been walking for 45 years with different faults!
In the first wave I learned an open salong walk untill the Nuevo steps swept me away.
Today it is nearly and mostly milonguero but you never know when I jump to other steps!
You can just trust on your body - it will relearn and develop to the direction you want!
