Master Classes
BE A WALKER, A MASTER WALKER…BUT DO NOT DO IT ALONE!“/THE FUNDAMENTALS AND THE WALK (Recommended to all levels) It is essential to have the fundamentals in place to dance TANGO.  Sync the connection with your partner together with the music while walking in multiple directions and pattern combinations. 

FRIDAY:  7:15- 8:45
THE RHYTHM OF YOUR SOUL / MUSICALITY FOR DANCERS (Recommended to all levels) When you understand the music, you start dancing with feelings. As musicians, Claudio & Virginia love to teach the importance of being musical by recognizing Accents and Pulses for Tango, Vals and Milonga.   

 SATURDAY: February 27
DIVO DIVA / EMBELLISHMENTS AND TECHNIQUE FOR MEN AND WOMEN (Intermediate/Advanced) With the right technique applied to the embellishments you will control your center and incorporate new ways to dance without interfering your partner´s balance. 

STEP AWAY YOUR AXIS” / COLGADAS & VOLCADAS (High-Intermediate/Advanced) To deliver a proper Colgada/Volcada it is important to have a clear understanding of being on axis and out-of-axis, a good posture and preparation.

Creative TangoTools Seminars

Happy 2016
TangoTools Seminars.
Adding points to your dance. 
2 Fridays a month
Twice a month on a Friday, I will share my take on the many tools  for dancing and understanding tango that I have acquired through more than 15 years of researching, dancing and teaching tango. Each year, in my trip to Buenos Aires I make  a list of accomplished tango dancers whom teaching approach I am interested. While many of the tango concepts are the same, the tools and techniques that each accomplished dancer  use  to explain their brand of tango, in most cases, seem diametrically opposed to the equally skillful tango dancer next door.  No wonder why there is tango war in many communities, but then that happens in any religion, politics and other human field. 
My idea for these seminars is not to change your mind about your tango or whatever style you most favor, but to ope n up to new additions that may enrich what you already possess. 
I will work with concepts and exercises that I own because they make sense to me and I have integrated them  in my dance or have tested their efficacy dancing with many partners.  
Come and give it a try, it may add that little extra for you and your partner enjoyment.
We will do a 3 months trial:
 Friday: January 08, 22nd
Friday: February 5th, 12th.
Friday: March 4th, 11th.

After that, if there is interest we will continue for another 3 months. Location:TBA
The duration: 1.5 hours. 
I hour of instruction and half an hour of practice. 
This is a class designed for people to work with a partner, so please come with a partne r, you can trade partners if you want during the half hour practice. If you don't have a life partner, you can ask another member of the community to be your partner in one class and maybe work with another partner on the next Friday
This format will allow each pair to work at their own  level. There is also the possibility of having two or 3 pairs that agree previous to the class to trade, totally up to you and them.

COST: $20 per class per person for 1.5 hour.  Pre-registration required.

Here a taste of the concepts that we will be exploring: 
How to get more vocabulary into your dancing the painless way: Foot chasing and more geometric.
How  to get the ahhhh feelings from the guy and the girl. The embracing lab.
I want to dance too- The follower inner confession and the gu y's puzzle look: What do you mean?
Find the music in unusual places! ticky, ticky....
And more, more... guarantee to be a fun and fulfilling experience. The concepts above are in not particular order.
