  1. How to use your body efficiently with good posture.
  2. How to listen and move to Tango music.
  3. Basic elements of the dance, footwork, and technique.
  4. How to maintain a good connection with your dance partner that facilitates moving together.

In private lessons, our goal is to share with you the powerful beauty of Tango.

During private lessons we focus on:
  • Good, relaxed posture.
  • Awareness about your body, space, and partner.
  • Musicality.
  • Footwork and technique.
  • Basic Argentine Tango patterns.
  • More complex patterns and combinations.

Lessons are 50 minutes long and will be booked after payment is received.

Neither group classes nor private lessons alone will make you a good dancer.

You need both.

  • If you take only private lessons, you make Tango a private relationship with your maestro, which is not enough to learn what is Tango.
  • If you only take group classes, you are not going to get deep enough into the fine details of Tango to make you a good dancer.
To dance Tango you must be a good dancer.

Juan Carlos Marambio Catán

Singer, lyricist, composer and actor (30 July 1895 – 15 February 1973)

Of all Marambio Catán’s activities it is impossible to omit his contribution as author.

Because of that he is remembered today, in a dictum that is not unfair, but it is indeed not thoroughly thought over when all his fame in this sense is based in the memory of three or four pieces. “Acquaforte” with music by Horacio Pettorossi, his most widely known creation which was a hit in the songbooks of Gardel and Magaldi was born in Europe.

Let us add the lyrics of several tangos which became famous in their instrumental versions, such as “El monito”, “Buen amigo” or “El choclo”.

Argentine Tango Technique 9: Forward ochos with Marcelo Solis.

Argentine Tango dance technique 9: Forward ocho

  • From this forward step to the next position going forward, in which you will transfer your weight to this now front foot, your torso is already rotating towards the center of the couple, so the foot that remains behind, by the pull of this torsion, which gets the shape of a spiral, turns your back foot, first, inside edge in contact with the floor, and then, makes it travel next to your sagittal line, to the “collect/inside edge position”.
  • After this “collect/inside edge position”, we research in these possibilities: 1. Forward ocho: Pivot more continuing on the same direction of your stablished rotation and move your free of weight foot forward, aligned with your lower sagittal plane, your torso torquing according to counter body movement, orientating the center of your chest to the central axis of the couple.
