Online Teaching

“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

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. I am also always available for online private classes on Zoom. Wherever you live, you can now study various subjects with me, alone or with your partner, such as: technique, aesthetics, musicality, following and leading, couple connection and improvisation. With time I realised that with the right approach you can achieve great results without me even being in the same room!

Online Private Classes

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 vero@tangomonamour.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 vero@tangomonamour.com.

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!

From November 2020 to June 2021 I was teaching a one-hour bodywork & technique class on Zoom in French. Each 1-hour class consists of 30 min of mat and standing exercises derived from yoga and Pilates, and 30 min of tango technique exercises around a particular topic, both for followers and leaders. You can buy any number of recordings for 10 Eur per class.

The topics we worked on include: posture, balance, free leg, walking, changes of directions, dissociation, pivoting, turns and sacada technique. We have also worked extensively on giros technique, salon and milonguero vocabulary.
