Interruption is part of the history of tango. During the dictatorship, tango became a family and home practice. It’s really not all about milongas.

Let us welcome this pause as part of the dance, a needed disruption of rhythm, part of a more complex one.

How exactly do you train at home alone?

What exactly to practice? For how long? How to be sure you’re doing it right? The TangoForge Home Practice Courses offer video training sessions with exercises. There are 10 courses for Marks, 10 for Revels, and 10 for Pairs.

Recognizing that people need the courses now more than ever, and also that many people are facing financial stress, we offer the practice courses at nearly 40% discount until the milongas reopen.

Yes, you need to train with partners, but about 70% of what most dancers need is a clear and strong understanding of technique and systems of variation.

You still have time to join the MasterCourse Challenge 2020 … do the whole MasterCourse with other students in 16 weeks for €300 less than the usual cost! ⚠️ Just be sure to join before the start on 27.March.

As important as training is taking time to reflect …

… on tango –or any hobby, passion, or pasttime– to check on how it is affecting our relationships and other aspects of our lives. I think this is very hard to do, because in milongas we slip or jump between polarities of pleasure and pain, which do not lend themselves to simultaneous consideration. Some people say that the word ‘but’ allows a contradiction to go unresolved. I created a workbook to help us do a proper audit.

The workbook is inspired by my new book, Until Forever: The Dark Silences of Argentine Tango, which seems to be the first book about tango that looks critically at tango’s contradictions.

To encourage you to both  reflect and  train, you’ll find at the bottom of this page even bigger discounts on combination packages.
