Our objective :
Our objective is to work the essence of Tango as well as its technical bases without looking for transmitting quickly only moves. We work slowly but surely, achieving this way to adapt to the rhythm of the students. The kind of Tango we are developing is absolutely suitable for the milonga (ballroom) where the student can stand for himself cultivating the codes of the milonga itself, with the du respect.
Our teaching is based on Tango as a social mood. To do so, we work hard in our class but always in a good mood so that the students can have a good time and learn from whatever we can create during class.
We share our love for tango, not only by teaching it but also by awaking the students sensibility to the different Tango orchestras and singers so they can adapt theire dance to the music, the music serving the body and not the body serving the music.
