Are you smelling bad?

Every now and then there is a campaign for more showers to the dancers! I agree it is nice to dance with someone who smells good or just neutral but it seems that the shower maybe is not enough for some of us.

According to this article there is two types of sweat glands; one for the heat control and the other to remove some substances from the body. So it is not always a missing shower causing problem but the ingredients in your meal can attract a partner or make him/her to break a tanda. It seems that there are several ingredients to be blamed - onions, cauliflower, curry, meat and so on . . .

Here you have a link to the article! Click this line

Personally I have noticed that fenugreek made me smell different, clearly different!

A question among others!

or should the question be like

 Is tango a more intimate dance than all the other dances?
you can be that intimate only with your near friends and therefor it is exclusionary

Korea Tango & Argentine group

There are benefits to train together with your peers! You learn about the musicality - more so with a good choreographer! How to relax in the moves so the the performance looks like improvised and still stay synchronized with your peers!

There were several groups in the competition but tis one I like a lot!

Encuentros are more safe

First time on an ordinary milonga this term and I fell to my knees in front of the follower!  (No living thing was harmed in the prosess!)

On the other hand I have managed 3 encuentro milongas in same pants without any problem. I think my feet are working differently in these two types of milongas! At an encuentro I never have had two feet in same leg . . . hmmm

(they are very wide  - 95 cm O )
