WELLNESS TANGO ONLINE CLASSES
We are glad to invite you to join us in our new Tango online project: WELLNESS TANGO. Our approach is based on a well thought program designed for dancers who want to stay active and sharpen their tango skills during these challenging changing times. Our goal is to develop functional tango training classes in a progressive consistent manner, to achieve better and more tangible results
Through focused body training, students will go through body mechanics and human movement oriented towards enhancing Tango skills. Such training will help improve muscle memory, create all types of isolated and complex movements with greater smoothness and better quality, and push one's dance skills to the next level.

IN PERSON TEACHING
We care very much about offering the best learning tools to students, so they can reach their Tango goals in a fun and efficient way. Our teaching style focuses on building a strong foundation where essential elements like posture, connection, embrace, technique and musicality become a vital part in the learning process. Our methodology involves a well planned individualized program that targets each individual goals and need in a very clear, detailed and functional way.
We encourage students to increase their sensitivity towards Tango, the connection with their own movements, with the partner and the music, as well as to develop the habit of practicing on their own. We strongly believe that to achieve the goals and rewards of Tango,learning should be a pleasant, relaxed and friendly experience.
Our strong recommendation is to take private lessons,since they are quite simply the fastest way for you to learn how to dance well. Individual attention ensures the most rapid understanding of the material you want to master and the subtleties of the dance.You will be able to improve at your own pace and you will learn to dance with complete confidence.
