bad sequences good mastercourse

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.  

Learn systems for finding the variations of the 25 Lexicon Elements 

and never use a sequence again.

We all need more students, more dancers in our milongas, and great partners to dance with for the next few decades...

How can we Popularize Tango?

With Sven Elze, Founder of the very popular Milonga Popular – Berlin, we've created a Thinkbook for Organizers, exploring how we can define the Tango Tribe who will resonate with each of us, find new marketing channels, craft resonant messages and images, and create experiences that make students fall in love with Tango from the first session.

Marketing is about Who is in the Room with You
And Why.

Our Pedagogy is incomparable.

We have distilled tango to just 5 Biomechanical Tools and we have identified the systems for improvisation of every element in the Tango Lexicon. This means our dancers can improvise, not memorize.

You can use our Free Youtube Channel "ELEMENTS of Argentine Tango" to check variations of any element, or enroll in our video MasterCourse for comprehensive explanation of the technique and variations of every element. If you don't like video, we also have a hyperlinked KnowledgeBase Encyclopedia, where you can go on your own journey, at your own speed.

Do you want to be a better dancer
but don't feel you are getting what you need from your teachers?

Or do you get contradictory advice from different partners?

I got tired of hearing men tell me to be "natural", "don't do anything", and "you're floppy", followed by "you're stiff"... So I studied biomechanics until I could teach perfect connection quickly.

We now have video solo practice courses that you can do at home to improve your knowledge, confidence, balance, and grace.

Order from our Digital School. Or enter your email below to preview the course:

Do you struggle to remember the moves from class?
Or wonder how your teacher moves so smoothly?

I got tired of hearing vague instructions like "push the floor", or "take the energy", so I studied biomechanics until I could teach all my students to dance like the experts, with anatomically-precise instructions.

Learn to improvise instead of memorize with our MasterCourse, with precise instructions of exactly how to use your joints and muscles in every movement, so you are strong, interesting, and confident.

Perfect Tanguera

What makes a Perfect Tanguera?

As soon as I started to write my guide to "How to Become a Hot TangoMan – Secrets from the Tangueras who Hope to Dance with You" I realized that I needed a guide for women. So I asked my 10 favorite Milongueros of all time (including my very first tango-crush) to tell me what to write. The result is clear guidance for women on what's important and what's not and how the best guys in the room would like you to let them know you'd like to dance with them. 

Put your email here and I'll send the guide to you immediately: 

Lexicon Test

Stop memorizing sequences*
and start improvising from the elements of Tango
*or being annoyed with yourself for not being able to remember them.

Take our Lexicon Self-Test,
then use our Impro Workbook
to structure your development. 

Enter your email and we'll send the Self-Test and Workbook directly to you. 

If you are a Revel/Follower and want to know what you can do to encourage and facilitate more improvisation, read our post on how to be a Divine Space/Time Machine

It's partnership.
