- Tango cannot be taught in separate stages: It only makes sense to learn Tango by learning simultaneously all its facets: moves, musicality, connection to the partner, social environment, history and culture. Any fragmentation of Tango in the process of teaching leads to misinterpretations.
- How this integral method works: We begin with the posture. It is comfortable, relaxed, and functional in relation to dancing embracing and embraced by a partner.
During the class we use a set of exercises to develop the moves and responses that you need to have in your body, in your muscle memory to be able to move harmonically with a partner in the situation of dancing at a milonga. These moves are connected to music.
We practice those exercises at the beginning of every class.
The moves would not be integrated in you muscle memory without repeating them a few times at every class or practice for a period of time.
When we practice these exercises in a class, our objective is not just to use them in that class, but to gradually incorporate them in your muscle memory, so they are available in your muscle memory for the classes you’ll take later.
I was born in Argentina. Through my family and the community that saw my upbringing, I have been intimately involved with the culture of Tango all my life, and have been an Argentine Tango dance performer, 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.
