Teaching Method and Approach

Argentine Tango’s unique elegance and sophisticated use of musical phrases and stylish footwork is a truly everlasting dance experience. Our effective teaching methods will get you dancing with good posture, balance, body awareness, all in a comfortable/connected couple embrace.

 

We encourage the understanding of tango as a creative/aesthetic form based on shared codes more clearly represented in the Classic Tango or Tango de Salon. Our specially designed TangoWorkout warm up and precise class structure will get you dancing in good style with clear technique.

 

TangoWorkout is the technique we have developed for warming ups and body physical preparation.  It responds to our urban life in the 21st Century. Alongside with learning tango sequences or figures we also invite our students to look at their own bodies’ naturally movement to nurture organic connections with the dancing partner.
