This is a blog about my experiences as a male beginner lead in Argentine Tango, aka a tango newb. So far in the beginning of my journey, I’ve been devouring any and every resource I’ve found online about the dance. My experience is from someone who’s in their late 20s trying to learn tango in NYC. Most other tango blogs I’ve found online have been either from the perspective of a female follow and/or an experienced instructor – so they’re not entirely relatable to me yet. I feel as though trying to learn tango as a beginner lead is such a uniquely grueling experience that I should blog about it so others in the future will perhaps relate and learn from my struggles.
