Author: Marcelo Solis

I was born in Argentina. Through my family and the community that saw my upbringing, I have been intimately involved with Tango all my life, and have been an Argentine Tango dancer, choreographer and instructor for over 30 years. I profoundly love Tango dancing, music, and culture, particularly that of the Golden Era. I am a milonguero.

Néstor Pellicciaro. Director Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires.The objective is to propose to the student search alternatives through corporal work, so that they apply it to the dance, (with respect to the Tango, which is our subject, we work in awareness of the energy lines, the body posture, the points of support in walking, breathing, dissociation exercises, notion of axis, connection with the couple and how to optimize the energy needed for dancing.

In short: the taking of body awareness and its synchronization with the musical stimulus. That is to say: that “we will not work with predetermined steps or styles” (“milonguero”, “Villa Urquiza”, “del Centro”, “de Palermo”, “saloon”, “stage”, “canyengue”, etc., etc.). ), otherwise we will look for:
“let the music flow through the whole body”

Modality of workshop.

* We will work with NO groups less than ten (10) people.

* The level of students will be considered (Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced)
In the case of the Beginners, it is convenient to concur in “couple”. (This mode is not necessary for Intermediates and Advanced).

* For Intermediates and Advanced you can work with groups specially classified by topics to develop, (Roles, turns, musicality, etc)

* You can work in different groups (Men and / or Women) or on “particular” or “general” proposals to be developed.

According to your criteria of “organizer” for the modules to work in each group, according to the level:

Level 1
1) Preparing for the dance / Walking alone / Walking together / Walking embraced
2) Bodily perception in the space of the Milonga.
3) Some steps
4) We go out to the track
5) Practice of what worked in the class with supervision

Level 2
1) Preparation for the dance / body alignment / Projection of the step.
2) Exercises to dance on axis / Dissociation / Balance
3) Turns in “eight” / Turns in “pivot”
4) Dance on a “tile”.
5) Practice of what worked in the class, with assisted supervision (conditioned).

Eduardo Arolas. Argentine Tango music. Escuela de Tango de Buenos Aires

“Viborita” is other of Arolas’ delicate tangos, with the peculiarity of having only two parts, without a trio, as was his custom. Recorded in 1920 for the first time by the Orquesta Típica Select of Osvaldo Fresedo. Its music sheet was not published until after 1930, when the nephew of Arolas received a pack with manuscripts. That is why it appears published as posthumous work. Wonderful rendition of this tango to dance at the milongas is the one recorded by Francisco Lomuto in 1944. Continue reading.

Violinist, leader and composer
(14 May 1912 – 21 May 1965)

Unequalled name, with more than six decades of unaltered force throughout two generations, is Alfredo Gobbi’s. When that indefatigable pioneer of the difficult beginnings of the tango conquest, called D. Alfredo Eusebio Gobbi, culminated his prolonged artistic performing career, his son, Alfredo Gobbi as well, was sticking out towards consecration, as the proper continuer of an illustrious popular artistic tradition of ours. He dedicated this tango to his father. Continue reading.
