Sex is Just a Crude Substitute for Tango
Like helping a babe first wading into the pool, this author gently grasps your arms and pulls you into the culture of tango dancing. Dance communities often have their own culture, quirks and peculiarities and Swan does a fantastic job of describing the many social aspects of tango. This book is a bit like a tourist guide to dancing tango, to know how to fit in at varying locations and how to look for partners.
There are no illustrations about steps and moves, but Swan describes them so well and so physically, you'll feel like you're already doing the moves yourself with a phantom partner. This book also gives a great emotional introduction to dance, like the connection partners feel and the way to avoid hurt feelings at dances. This isn't strictly an instruction manual. It's a social guide, introduction and a lead (if I may use a tango term) to this spectacular form of dance. I wish there was one of these books for every kind of dance.
