As a follower: or female dancer as Monica says, at the milongas, she chooses her partners after recognizing the orchestra that is playing. Once on the dance floor, she adapts her dance selection how to do each movement.
As a leader: After 20 years of dancing with many milongueros, Monica became very good at breaking down their dance. You know several steps but always dance the same way? It’s time to add “flavor” to your dance.
