While learning tango it is important to find a tango teachers whose dance style and life philosophy is sympathetic with yours.
UPDATE: Now that we are back to dancing all over the world, I still recommend finding a teacher whose style and ethos you like.
And the only other thing I would add is do you want to compete in various events? Do you just want to dance in your hometown? Or do you want to travel and dance all over the world.?
What are your questions?
Those are the questions that you might ask, and then discover where your passion lies. And if any of these teachers are in your area for a workshop, run and sign up, You will not be sorry!!!
ARCHIVE: In conclusion, during coronavirus times, each of us must do our part to continue with tango by taking online classes, or attending online milongas until we can embrace in person.
Therefore for tango to succeed we always must try new things out, whether it is a milongas, a festival, new classes, new shoes, new clothes or a new teachers.
