Understanding Milonguero, Salon and Nuevo Styles

What characterizes milonguero, salon and nuevo? Do you know the difference? Do you have a preference?

We believe that each style offers beautiful and unique resources for expression, and that the best tango is that which is well-danced and expressive, beyond labels. This series of workshops was designed from this point of view. Our goal is to give students a better understanding of the different styles of social tango and to equip them with an expanded set of resources for expressing the music.

More specifically, we will explore:

• the techniques for walking in each style, looking at their inherent staccato, legato and pendular qualities;

• the techniques for turning, looking at how they differ completely in terms of use of pivots, dissociation, momentum and space, creating very different sensations;

• some of the vocabulary that is characteristic of each style, including the tiniest and most playful (and useful!) milonguero turns, sublime salon turns with sacadas, enrosques and planeos, and dynamic nuevo turns combined with very gently led (but very powerful!) boleos;

• most importantly, how to apply the different techniques to rhythmic, melodic and dramatic music, matching the quality of movement to the quality of the sound and making your own choices to create personal interpretations.

Daniela and Luis met during her first trip to Buenos Aires. What was supposed to be Luis's last tanda for the night turned into two hours of dancing together. The magical connection they experienced that night led them to share their tangopaths. Daniela left her career as an MIT engineering professor to join Luis as his tango partner. Luis left Buenos Aires to join her in NewYork City, where they currently reside.

Daniela and Luis' performances have been described as sensational,passionate, musical, and technically impeccable. Their dance is based ondeep knowledge of the different styles of tango: milonguero, salon,nuevo and stage, which they blend with ease and fluidity to create very personal interpretations.
