look for music they do like, to which they can dance Tango.
And it seems more and more non Tango music lovers, are dancing Tango to
non Tango music. Why didn't we apply a filter in the first place.
Why try so hard to make someone like Tango. Surely as in most activity,
people will do better in pursuits they like. Maybe our Tango community
has Tango Enforcers out there. Maybe it's all about money. I don't know.
I just wish people would stop trying to change Tango to appeal more to
people who don't like Tango.
