Thanks for your always logical feedback Trini but most teachers
on this list will continue to miss my point.
Here's a reply that I just got from someone off list that 'gets it'.

"That is?right, Mario,?that milonga is not complicate here in BsAs
milongas and floor is full with simple dancers. But many North American
and European?dancers do not know how to let go, relax?and?and?enjoy
fun?feeling. They prefer to keep distance, stay stiff?and?do
movements?complicated like robots.
?They have to come and?dance here?to
traditional?milongas?and really dance, not just go to courses and pay much money?to
learn steps as without coming from a spontanious feeling they look
strange."

Mario -

I am guessing that most teachers will continue to miss the point
because they discuss things in terms of experienced students who
understand tango, rather then newbies who don't quite get it yet.

I can tell you that milonga is certainly alive and well here in
Manhattan, as well as all the other places to which I travel. For a
good introduction to the fundamentals of milonga, you might wish to
beg, borrow, steal, or (gasp) buy Fran Chesleigh's instructional
milonga DVD.
