Face it. We all have a bit of the Tango snob in us. How can we help it? No other dance combines intimacy, creativity, artistry and culture quite like Tango. So it is easy to become a bit chauvinistic about it.
So in a spirit of lighthearted fun, see if you recognize yourself.
You might be a Tango snob if....
You never have fewer than 3 pairs of Tango shoes in your car - and they are all Comme Il Fauts...because you would never wear anything else.
You refuse all verbal requests to dance. Real Tango dancers cabeceo!
You serve mate at your house milonga.
You have been heard to express the opinion that Nuevo is not REAL Tango.
You never arrive at a milonga during the first hour.
Your computer wallpaper is a slide show of La Boca.
You refer to Tango stars by their first names only.
You discuss Tango in Spanish....even though you don't speak Spanish
You complain if the DJ plays anything recorded after 1948.
You don't understand why anyone would ever dance anything but Tango.
