Is there anyone so wise as to learn by the experience of others?—Voltaire

As tango dancers, we can learn so much from the experiences of others. Whether it's watching a milonguero dance effortlessly with their partner or listening to the stories of seasoned dancers, we can gain valuable insights into this beautiful dance.

But it's not just about observing and listening. It's also about applying what we learn to our own dance. We can take inspiration from the dancers who have come before us and use it to shape our own unique style.

However, it's important to remember that tango is not just about the steps or the technique. It's about the connection, the communication, and the feeling. The wisdom we gain from others should be used to enhance these aspects of our dance.

In the context of Tango Zen, we can also learn from the experiences of others in our journey towards mindfulness and presence on the dance floor. By observing the calm and centeredness of a Zen-like dancer, we can strive to cultivate these qualities in ourselves.

So let us embrace the wisdom of those who came before us and use it to enhance our own tango journey. And in turn, we can also share our own experiences with others, for there is always something to learn and gain from each other in this beautiful dance.
