‘T’ is for Tango

5 April 2013

We’ve all had the experience of trying to spell a word out for someone and our mind goes completely blank until we’re left with, “N for....nice?”

Let us know what you think and email marketing@istd.org if there are other dance terms you’d like to see added to the list...
