To do tango steps correctly, we must learn to move and step with a high degree of precision. For instance, if we don't step far enough, don't pivot and ocho enough, etc, the figure won't feel good. Or, it won't work altogether.

This can be frustrating!

To cut down on that frustration, perhaps we need a sift in mindset. When we make mistakes in tango, it's true that we haven't been precise. But when something feels wrong, let's not always assume it's because we've made a huge mistake. On a technical level, it often means we were very close to being right.

With that mindset, trying again is much more palatable.
