What you'll do
Did you know you can get a taste of authentic Argentine Tango right here, in Los Angeles? I am a professional tango dancer, instructor and life coach who loves introducing folks with two left feet to this amazing, fun social partner dance. I will work with you, your partner (if you have one) or your group of friends on developing some basic dance skills. If you do not have a partner, I make a perfect leader and/or follower and will be happy to fill in. Together we will explore the concept of lead-and-follow, the art of connection, and the skills of non-verbal communication and improvisation upon which this dance is structured. You will learn the tango walk "caminata", the tango basic step called "baldosa", the 8-count basic step with "cruzada". You will get a taste of traditional and modern tango music, as you practice dancing to both styles. Each session is custom-tailored to every student and their own personal goals. At the end of the lesson you will receive a short video re-cap you can use to review and practice at home. Not only will you walk away with some basic concepts and Argentine Tango steps, you will also embody deeper life lessons that you can take from the dance floor and into your own dance of life. No special attire or dance shoes required to enjoy this fun lesson. Looking forward to seeing you on the dance floor.
I am a musician by education, a dancer by choice and a creator of Living Tango (r) method. Although I love various Latin dances, my specialty is teaching the art of connection through the lens of authentic Argentine Tango, a social partner dance, just the way it is danced in tango clubs all over the globe, including Buenos Aires. I've spent almost 20 years teaching complete beginners and those who claim to have two left feet. One of my most favorite experiences sharing my passion for Tango, is introducing hundreds of newbies to this amazing partner dance at the Music Center, DTLA each year...for the last 14 years. Seeing so many people from so many different backgrounds and cultures embrace each other and dance together in harmony is simply magical. The best thing is...you don't need a partner to learn Tango! It takes YOU to Tango!
Music and great dance floor is all you'll need.
