last dance in the private tango lesson - too terrifying!

Angelique
I have a secret terror that I must share!
I love private tango lessons, and get a lot out of them.
BUT I am terrified of that 'last dance' at the end of a private lesson, when you are supposed to show all that you have brilliantly learnt, and of course dance perfectly with the teacher.
The pressure just kills me. What's even worse is that of course because it is at the END of the lesson, you can't go back and 'fix' any mistakes ... there is no time left.
Is it just me or do other have the same fear?
I just wish the lesson would end WITHOUT that damn last dance! ;)

o my god I so agree!!!!!
I dread these stupid end of class dances.
I'm thinking reading this thread I'm just going to ask my teacher not to have them. After all I'm the one who is paying!

I think get over your fear and just do it.
These last dances are very important for you and the teacher, as it shows you if you have really learnt.

I agree they can be very daunting...
But do this - just remember that you are paying for the lesson not the other way around. If you are not dancing well by the end of the lesson it is the teacher's fault not yours. Remember this and it will relax you.
