Which Tango are you learning?

Learning choreographed “Steps”

every month will not make a good dancer.

That’s good if you are planning

to perform inTango Show on Broadway

If you are only doing steps and exercises

you will not learn to dance A.T.

If you feel frustrated,

If you can’t put it together,

then this workshop is for you!

Argentine Tango is navigating and dancing the music!

It is not dancing one “choreographed step” after another.

It is not lifting your partner to the ceiling.

Come and learn what dancing with musicality means!

Musicality is 50% of the dance!

Good Tango is not about steps you can’t lead or how many

Ganchos and Sacadas you can do.

Tango is about Musicality, Navigation, and Improvisation.

You and your partner are silent instruments of the orchestra

the space

and the floor craft allows it.

If you feel frustrated.

If after many lessons you can’t dance,

dancing to the melody.

Come and learn how to create your own sequence.

Creating you own sequence

will make you dance like a true milonguero.

Come and learn what you can add to the sequence when

This classes are for you!

Learning one step per week or 52 steps in a year, every year

will not make you dance tango.

Tango is not about Steps,

It is about dancing the music,

It is about Improvisation,

It is about Floor Craft,

It is about dancing in crowded floors,

It is about simplicity,

It is not about complexity.

If you can’t lead your partner, you can’t dance.

In Tango, there are two kinds of steps or figures.

The first are the choreographed steps learned with a permanent partner

which are used in performances and exhibitions.

The second kind are sequences which can be lead.

These sequences can be used with any partner at any milonga in the world.

Remember 90% is navigation and Floor Craft.

Stop learning steps you can’t lead! Come and learn Floor Craft!
