The magic of Tango
Tango is characterized by a free and embraced dance.
Tango is a dance “from heart to heart”. It is as simple as hugging and walking together.
With this simplicity, tango becomes an incredibly beautiful dance and allows everyone to dance it.
With time and practice you can learn seemingly difficult moves.
Actually, these movements are not difficult. They are just variations of the basic movements. For this reason, it is very important to have a sound basis.
At “Mi Escuela de Tango” you will learn the tools that will allow you to have a good technical basis and to really understand the essence of tango dancing.
I could talk for hours about how wonderful this dance is and the physical and emotional well-being that it can bring to your life.
But I think it is better if you experience the magic of tango by yourself.
My many lessons with you during February 2016 were perfect.
You opened the door for me to the essence and soul of tango.
So much played a role: your skills and patience as a teacher who has a deep understanding of the essence of tango, the tango culture and the tools and techniques to use to teach your university study of tango and professor degree distinguish you from the multitude of teachers in Buenos Aires your warmth as a person you helping me to disassociate and find and maintain my axis and balance you doing numerous exercises and working with me to express intention and be graceful when l walk and pivot you exploring musicality with me you emphasizing how crucial the connection, the embrace and the “now moment” are for tango dancing and enabling me to let go and experience meshing with my partner you helping me to create and feel my own personal dance style Your expertise and personalized lesson plan for me produced great results and allowed me to begin a new tango chapter, on a higher level, free of any doubt and with confidence and elegance.
A dream come true! I look forward to lessons with you on my next trip to Tango Mecca and will certainly highly recommend you to people I know traveling to BA!!!
Testimonio de Linda B., USA
Teaching is not dancing.
Teaching is an act of love. It is sharing knowledge with others and helping them find their own way.
Like the flight of a bird, dancing leaves no trace. Each tango is an art in itself, where dancers are both artists and art.
The instructor’s mission is to help you find the tanguero in you that will be unique and irreplaceable.
Nobody has your style, and that is one of the ingredients of the beauty of tango: that everything is different and, in turn, similar.
I was trained to teach Tango, in addition to my experience at the milongas in Buenos Aires and the tango legacy of my tango family.
My academic background
My official training was at the Centro de Estudios de Tango de Buenos Aires, CETBA, popularly known as “Universidad del Tango” and at Casa de la Cultura, both belonging to the Ministry of Culture of Buenos Aires.
But my great transformation to be a tango teacher I received from Maestro Rodolfo Dinzel with whom I was trained at his school, Estudio Dinzel, for 2 years.
Maestro Dinzel marked a “before and after” in my tango. With him I learned and developed tools to transform anyone’s dance.
Today, after more than 10 years teaching tango in Buenos Aires to people from over the world, I feel truly mature as a tango instructor, and I can convey the specific knowledge that each person needs, in a concise and effective way.
My deepest wish is to help you to dance the tango that you desire without any impediments. Just start and see that it is possible!
Miriam is my dance partner, and we teach Tango together.
She has danced tango for 12 years.
She started her studies with the instructors Martin Omlin & Åse Synnøve Johnsen in Zurich.
Miriam lived in Buenos Aires for several years. She did her academic training at CETBA and then improved her dance with the maestra Verónica Salmerón.
Miriam is an Alexander technique therapist.
This technique contributes significantly to improve the ergonomic body movements and posture of the dancers, which helps them achieve a natural, pleasant and beautiful dance.
Tango is danced between two
We work on our tango as dancers, but also as instructors.
The masculine and feminine vision are present in our pedagogy, from which any man or woman can learn, regardless of age, experience, social condition, culture, language, etc.
We work on your whole body from head to toes, especially the body posture, because in Tango the body posture is decisive.
Along with this, we work on the movements of the body, knowing its limits and its possibilities and we integrate them with the embrace and musicality, basic conditions for moving embraced.
Having a good technical and theoretical basis is essential to understand, learn and, especially, enjoy dancing tango.
Our Tango classes
There are many ways to learn to dance tango.
If you are a beginner or have little experience, and want to learn quickly or in a certain time, the most recommended way is private classes.
In these, we customize your learning so that you achieve exponential progress.
In each class we work on a specific theme with specific exercises that will transform your body and enhance your perception and sensitivity.
If you are a beginner, a good basis is very important. You become aware of your body and work on your movements knowing its limits and its possibilities.
We have a comfortable, fully equipped ballroom in the center of Zurich, where you can come alone or with a partner.
Our private lessons take an intense hour where you go deeply into a theme and leave with something new that you have discovered to improve your dance.
Book your private class and start today!
This time when tango activities are interrupted are ideal to take private classes and work all the mechanics of your body.
The body has possibilities and limits in the movements and we sometimes make little and unconscious use of these.
Working on all the possibilities and limits of movement improves the quality of your dance and promotes mutual enjoyment with your partner and a general state of well-being.
It also improves your posture considerably and the aesthetics of your tango in all movements.
Would you like to get a good “caminata”, get the most out of the pivots, use your body correctly for turns, explore the possibilities of the embrace? Would you like understand musicality and enjoy playing with it and your partner?
This the best time to make your tango grow exponentially, so that you feel a great difference when you dance again.
We are expecting you!
