I thought I was going to Buenos Aires but instead landed in HEAVEN
If I had tried to do this on my own it would have taken me weeks to get up to speed but instead every suggestion was “Dead On Target” and I have felt eternally grateful for such a wonderful adventure.
From the minute I arrived, Vicki and Rob have arranged the following activities and events for me.
- Elegant dinner and wine party
- The Garden Apartment was everything advertised and more
- Private tango lessons with an expert instructor twice a week at the house
- The best Tango Taxi Dancer 3 times a week who picked me up at their home.
- Masseuse for massages
- Hair Appointments
- Guidance on where to purchase dance shoes. I bought 4 pairs of Tango shoes.
- Vicki arranged for an appointment only visit to a fabulous place to buy tango clothes. I bought 10 outfits.
- Guidance on Radio taxis, places to eat and best places to purchase food and help in exchanging money
- When Vicki and Rob were available, they invited me to join them at their favorite milongas.
On the teacher of the house :
Diego is an outstanding teacher. He was able to dance with me and in minutes he was able to sense the areas that I needed help with. I was amazed.
I don't think that I have ever shared with Vicki that I have a the inherited variety of essential tremor (familial tremor) which is an autosomal dominant disorder. A defective gene from just one parent is needed to pass on the condition.
Diego was able to spot that tremor which almost disappears when I am doing something physical. He has me doing special practice exercises to help me better control this problem.
Last night I went out to dance and the best dancer happened to ask me to dance. He asked me who my teacher was and I told him that his name was Diego. He immediately wanted to know his last name so I told him that he would have to talk with Vicki. He told me that I was an excellent dancer.
What makes Diego specially good at what he does is that he works with each student at the level where they need help. He is not teaching steps but instead he is working on movement and balance. In just a few lessons I am able to read the followers suggestions that I wasn't always able to pick up before.
Thank you for asking my advice.
