SPECIAL WORKSHOP: TECHNIQUES FOR FOLLOWERS

In May, during two sessions, a group of dedicated followers joined María Olivera for her special workshop on techniques to improve the balance, the posture, the lightness and the decorations, all within the context of keeping the body healthy and comfortable for enhancing the connection with the partner and the joy of the dance.

Thanks to all who came and trusted their learning to María's method and concepts!

We had the pleasure and the honor of teaching the workshop "Social Tango: Musicality and Decorations" at El Beso.

During four classes, we studied how to recognise and interpret 8 of the most popular orchestras we dance at the milongas around the world.

Working with a group of students who both love tango and respect its cultural value was an amazing and unforgettable experience.

SPECIAL WORKSHOP @ "EL PARAKULTURAL"

January's workshop on Milonga Lisa & Traspié at Milonga Parakultural has become a classic. This time we worked on vocabulary and techniques to improve our understanding and expand the fun we can have dancing the happiest dance.
Working at the completely renewed Salón Canning in its beautiful dance floor upgraded the experience by far, and we, as always, are thankful to all who joined the classes and to Omar, Federico and Horacio, for opening the door of the prettiest dance hall in Buenos Aires.
