TangoForge Argentine Tango: Dance from the Elements

We have just completed our YouTube Series, Elements of Tango. These 1-2 minute videos show just the variations of each of the 25 Tango Elements.

What are the Tango Elements?

In the 19902, Gustavo Naveira organized a diverse group of dancers to analyze the tangoinherited from the 1940s. This group foound a way to understand it instead of as a series of sequences, but by its most basic elements.

Why Dance from the Elements?

Argentine Tango is a way to share your creativity and musicality.

Sequences are bad for everything we care about.

Who needs to concentrate when everyone is dancing the same sequences? Dance one Element at a time and keep your partner’s full attention for more intense connection. 

Sequences cause crashes. Learn to dance from the Elements so you can always innovate with changing space.

Sequences have canned musicality. Use the Elements to express the music with your personality.

Sequences destroy Revels’ sensitivity. When Revels experience the same sequences too often it becomes an automatism and she will do it even it’s not marked.

If you are ready to start learning from the elements you can take our Self-Test or enroll in our MasterCourse which covers all 25 Elements of tango in just 10 hours of video, including all the technique you need, as well as the systems of varations.

I want you to know that you are not alone…

… neither in your dreams for tango nor in your frustrations.

My deepest desire is the same as all my students and friends … those who have yet to start dancing and those who dance a lot.

It’s partnership.

One thing I’ve learned on this quest, we need to:

Stop Waiting for Partners, and start Building them.

I’ve written a 10-step Action Plan.
