Tango cannot be taught in separated stages.
It only makes sense to learn Tango learning all the facets of Tango, like moves, musicality, connection to the partner, social environment, history and culture, at the same time. Any fragmentation of Tango in the process of teaching will lead to misinterpretations.

Buenos Aires is the world capital of Tango, and its birthplace.
There, I wish to share with you the friendship and appreciation of the milongueros that I am lucky to enjoy.
We all feel Tango in our bodies. In each move, each new milonga we go to, each partner we dance with, each new learning experience it reveals, Tango belongs to us, and we belong to Tango. It is a wonderful feeling, and one of the key reasons why Tango is so appealing, why its rhythm is so addictive.
However, Tango also belongs to others, to people we share it with. If we do not pay attention to that, we may fall in a very egotistic, self-centered, selfish approach to tango. That would leave us with nothing, or with something we may call tango, but it is not.
Among the others we share Tango with are those who have danced it before us. Most of them are not with us anymore, but a bunch of them are still alive, and dancing in the milongas of Buenos Aires. Would you miss the opportunity of meeting them, seeing them dance, chatting with them, and dancing with them? If you let it pass you by, it will be a big loss for Tango, especially for “your” Tango, the one in your turn you will share with those who come after you.
