TangoForge Pedagogy

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 actionable 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.

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 musicality working with the rhythm and the melody, 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.

TangoForge at Bruges NeoTango Marathon

In collaboration with the Bruges NeoTango Marathon we will teach a one-day Seminar and two Workshops.

Friday, 7.February 14:00-19:00 with a one hour break:
Theme: SOLTADAS
It’s possible to maintain perfect communication and connection in any embrace, with any touch, and even without touch. To do this, we trust tango’s method of sharing balance, tango’s extraordinary communication technology, and tango’s pathways and interaction-systems.
PRE-REGISTRATION ONLY SEE BELOW

Saturday, 8.February 14:00-16:00 with a short break
THEME: Pro vs. Contra circular voleos.
In this workshop we will learn the technique for both pro and contra circular voleos and explore the different uses for different dynamics.
