Let me welcome you to the Machismo Academy whose title is deliberately ironic because, while we need to seek perfection - like Machismo's pocket handkerchief - we must also know that we won't ever attain it, and therefore approach the learning of tango with a sense of fun, not dread. So before you go a step further, my first request is that you read Tango's Ten Commandments if you haven't already done it. And after that, let me suggest that you regard Argentine Tango as an offline refuge from our everyday wired life.
