Just want to warn anyone going to milongas that I've been hustled by teachers twice ... and in a rather offending way.

The first danced with me for one minute, said, "This just isn't working." Asked me how long I'd been dancing, insulted my teacher's expertise, said I could use some instruction and oh, he just happened to know someone who was a teacher and he just happened to have business cards with him. (By the way, insulting someone's dancing skills is not milonga etiquette, either here or the U.S.)

The second person sat with me, chatted, asked for my name so they could Facebook me, was very friendly, contacted me online, but inevitably, this one too had a tango teaching friend and this was his number, and when was I going to call, blah, blah, blah. When I said I wasn't quite settled enough yet to make a committment, "Poof." Vanished.

Just writing about my experience. My teacher back home has given me names of good teachers ... I'm just not ready yet.
