Since the beginning of the covid-19 pandemic I have developed an offer of online workshops, lectures and private classes. Below you will find some of the recorded workshops from the lockdown period that you can purchase.
“The first person you need to connect to is yourself, then you need to connect to the floor and next, to the music. Only then will you be able to connect properly to another person as well.” From Why you should practice tango both alone and in couple
Private classes on Zoom
Wondering what you can possibly study in an online private class? There are many things that I can help you develop and practice alone or with your partner, related to posture, technique, specific vocabulary, musicality, embellishments, aesthetics and how to avoid injuries when dancing. This might also be the time to ask the questions you have always asked but never got a satisfying answer.
I teach followers and leaders alone, as well as couples. I speak French, English, Russian, Italian, Spanish, German and Dutch. Yep, fluently. If you are interested in a private class, send me an email to email@example.com or message me on Facebook.
Technique workshops for solo practice
You can now purchase my three online technique workshops for followers from the series “SPRINGTIME TANGO MAGIC” that I have taught in the spring of 2021. Each workshop recording is 1h30min long and the price is 20 eur/video. To get the videos send me a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Springtime Tango Magic #1
In workshop “PLANT GOOD HABITS AND WATCH THEM GROW” you will learn:
– how to correctly align your posture and protect your lower back, especially when walking backwards;
– how to make large back steps without losing your balance;
– a magic trick for pivoting light and easy.
Springtime Tango Magic #2
In workshop “PLANT PIVOTS, GROW VOLEOS!” you will work on the technique of front and back pivots, as well as correct dissociation technique, setting up a strong basis for front and back voleos. You will learn how to properly relax and control the free leg in these movements without losing balance or hurting yourself.
Springtime Tango Magic #3
In this workshop “PLANT A FLOWER GARDEN!” you will study some common as well as less common embellishments for the free leg, to use during pivots but also for CALESITA movements. After this class you will never feel lost when dancing a calesita!
