Argentine Tango School

Author: Marcelo Solis

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.

What is the goal of a good technique in Tango?

To allow you to move comfortably and expressively, while giving your partner a comfortable and expressive space and time next to you, in a social setup, with other dancers sharing the same dance floor, opening a door to reveal the nuances of your persona to yourself, creating your dance as a work of art.

The technique has to be a way to efficiently use your body, so much that moving should energize and heal you.

It should open you to reveal the nuances of your persona to yourself to create your dance as a work of art.

Dancing Tango we show off our capacity to hug, making with it a work of art.

Our hug is visible in as far as our footwork and beyond. This particular way of embracing is what distinguishes Argentine Tango from other partner dances.

It is precisely this characteristic what makes private lessons an essential part of your learning path. Embracing your partner and dance Argentine Tango is to have a profound and creative conversation, full of joy and awakenings.

The process of learning to dance Argentine Tango requires training yourself in the art of such conversation.

There are not general formulas for your spontaneity, wit, and charm.
