The Last Tango....

I went to my first Tango lesson today. When we got there, there was a man limbering up in the corner, which worried/confused me somewhat, was I in the right place or had the Tango become an Olympic sport? I wasn't quite sure.....

The room was packed and it looked ever so easy when the instructors did the demonstration. Then me and H paired up and decided quite quickly that we were better off doing it on own, so to speak, until we'd learnt the foot work.

It was a lot harder than it looked. For one, you couldn't see the instructor, so you were reliant on the person in front of you doing it right. Then the room was really packed, so you were forever bumping into people, as you twirled around.

I felt completely out of my comfort zone, but you know what, I really enjoyed myself - good thing really, as I have another five weeks of this!

I seem to be a little more motivated at the moment. I rebooked my balloon flight today - 22nd May, so hopefully that will be another task ticked off. Hopefully this will spur me on to complete more off my list - I'll let you know if it does!

Ooh, it sounds difficult already without the added extra people and lack of visibility. It does sound fun though. My husband would NEVER go to a dance class with me :(

good fun - sometimes out of the comfort zone is a good place to be.

You're quite brave doing this! It does indeed sound like a step outside the comfort zone.

Hope you tell us how things go in the upcoming classes.

Michelle - Yes it was difficult and it's made me appreciate the celebs that go on 'Strictly' more. I had to end up going with one of my friends as hubbie declined!
Pablito - Yep, I quite agree!
Trousers - I'm finding more and more of my tasks are taking me outside my comfort zone, some I love, some I don't and yes I will keep you uptodate with each class - there are a few oddballs already!
