In Berlin, we teach private lessons and occasional workshops. We also organize a special Altertango event, called TRYST.

Learn to use your body for tango. That’s Biomechanics.

Regardless of which “style” of tango you prefer, all Argentine Tango relies on the same skills.

We have studied anatomy and biomechanics to be able to give direct and clear instructions for sublime connection, balance, clear communication, and fluid movement.

We teach Argentine Tango technique in a way that everyone can understand and implement, so that teaching is not a cult of personality and metaphor, but a toolbox that students can use on their own to diagnose their own errors, assist partners, and learn faster from any teachers.

Learn to use tango for your creativity. That’s Improvisation.

We teach tango from the elements, without sequences or memorization. Our goal is to empower dancers to experience creativity. The Lexicon of Tango is the repertoire of 25 Elements and their variations inherited from the 1940s.

Until the mid-1990s, tango was understood in groups of steps, or sequences. The Cochabamba Investigation Group analyzed tango and identified the basic elements, from which dancers can compose.

Dancing from the elements empowers dancers to to express every music, challenge partners to maintain intense concentration, and use space skillfully for better floorcraft.

TangoForge is a global community of dancers committed to sublime technique and maximum artistry.

We dance Argentine Tango in a traditional way which means that we take pride in our skills. We dance every movement in the Tango Lexicon inherited from the 1940s – in every variation, on both sides!

We seek to dance with contrast of mood from serious to humorous, with a contrast of rhythmic and melodic musicality, with contrast of speed and dynamic, and variation in the embrace from sweet to sensual to athletic – always with sublime connection.

We encourage all gender/roles, styles, and the application of tango to every music you love.
