Contemporary culture has an idealized picture of the American Dream where a company can be started from nothing by anyone in a garage.
According to the the stories Amazon, Apple, Disney, Google, Harley Davidson, HP, Mattel, Microsoft, Dell and Nike among many other giants all started by previously unknown genius founders from incredibly humble beginnings of simple garage operations and became multi-national, billion dollar corporations.
I would like to argue that the idea of starting these businesses from zero is largely misrepresented. The garage by itself is significantly more than meets the eye.
I’d like to say the Garage Dance Studio is the home of The Hartford Argentine Tango Society. To protect to inspire and create ideas and the existence of the garage suggests that there is enough wealth available to support a fairly large non-essential space to experiment. The wealth of which I speak is of the minds and the bodies of young and old who live dance as part of life essentials.
A typical garage we’re talking about in itself is larger than what most families on Earth live in as their primary space. Having a garage is a huge luxury if we look at it from a global perspective.I’m proud and thankful to have one to live my dream.
