Learning any valuable knowledge or art, like Tango is -both an art form and wisdom-, is not easy; it is also not an easy task for teachers to educate students about it.
If you add to the mix a new, unfamiliar environment, namely “online”, things become a little more challenging, not only for students, but also for teachers.
However, if there is good will, the challenges can be overcome, and both teachers and students gain the advantages that online classes can provide.
All the students who have joined our virtual classes have improved exponentially, and I want to congratulate them from my part and from Miranda’s: Mimi, Danielle, Suzanne, Kathy and Pietro, Katalina, Janette, Laura, Vitaliy, Olga, Lyudmila, Lynn, Alvaro, Athena, Cora and Ryan, Dima and Jenia, David and Stephanie, Oscar and Tara.
I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage those of you who have not joined us yet, to not miss more of our classes online.
I am asking you to suspend all judgements and preexisting biases about it and jump into this experience without a doubt that it will be greatly beneficial for you and for all of us: teachers and students.
The time will come when we will be able to get together again in person. A good portion of our wonderful group of students kept the continuity of our student/teacher relationship and of the whole of our group to Tango itself.
We are very thankful for this.
It is very important to understand that the bridge that links to online classes can keep you connected to Tango and to the rest of our group, is going to benefit not only you, but all.
