To Dance Argentine Tango is a Miracle: 2 videos by da-AL

A year ago January, I messed up my left knee big time in a skiing accident. Recovery was horrendous, as was dealing with insurance. It wasn’t till July that I was healed enough for surgery. A few weeks before the big day, however, I slipped at Trader Joe’s and broke more parts of the same knee. That second fall meant postponing surgery.

A blessing! As I waited anew for surgery, I found a wonderful orthopedist who suggested that I might not need cutting after all! Lo and behold, fourteen months later, my knee is almost perfect! I can dance!

Here are a couple of short clips of my husband and me practicing Tango Elegante steps taught to us by a fab duo.

Update on my learning about blogging: Resolution on these videos is minuscule and there’s no sound — the camera was, “from the era of the mummies,” as my mom would say.

A great youtube video on how to use iMovie enabled me to trim the ends. Turns out WordPress.com only allows video links, as opposed to uploads. Hence, I opened a youtube account, uploaded the clips there, and then linked them below. Since starting this blog, I continue to join more sites. So far I’m on FaceBook, Twitter, and YouTube. Figuring out the best setting for all of them takes time. So does figuring out how to make the best use of them. Suggestions welcome!

What you think of the new background (a section of a flamenco themed monoprint I made) and how text now scrolls while the background remains static?

Opinions welcome throughout. When you click on a link, do prefer it to open into new browser tab or into this tab?

Did you know that dogs like to dance too? At least ours do!

My review for Yelp about the knee-saving orthopedist (note: he’s since relocated to a neighboring suite).
The terrific Tango Elegante teachers.
A good iMovie how-to.
