snow and new year resolutions

This snowy weather has been challenging for us country folk, roads have been "treacherous" according to the Daily Telegraph and many events and classes have had to be canceled or postponed. I am really looking forward to our regular Monday night class though tomorrow night, with guest tango teachers (albeit no further extreme weather!) Loyd Vidal and Sandra Bernard of Gallo Ciego tango club, b'ham. They should soon get us back on the straight and narrow. I hope everyone else will feel the same. The Christmas and New Year break has gone on longer than ever, exacerbated by the snow, and my clothes are feeling a little on the tight side too. However, we almost don't need to make resolutions (in the traditional self-righteous sense) if we are committed tangueros and tangueras, as leading a life devoted to tango really can keep us healthy both physically and emotionally. I should feel relaxed about my little bit of extra padding my body has added over the festive period and all the comforting family cooking, for a week or so of serious dancing will soon do its job hopefully. Tango is the way forward, as it was last year .. more lessons, more workshops, more musical awareness, but most importantly more sensitivity from both leaders and followers. My resolution is to simply continue spreading this wonderful secret to good physical and emotional health, tango more, but with true conviction and utter commitment to the person dancing opposite!
