About Judy Phelps (from her website)
Tango, for me, is first and foremost about listening. Much easier to say
than it is to really do it. For the past 19 years I have been trying to
learn to listen better both as a leader and a follower. As with many
things in my life, I’ve made some progress but still have difficulties
with consistency. There are so many things to listen to and so little
RAM left with which to do it. Fortunately the pursuit is rewarding in
itself. Tango is about building community. It means working hard to
improve communication skills on all levels and getting to hang out with
people you really like while you do it.
