About TangoForge

We create a community of students who encourage and collaborate across levels, learn both roles, and work hard to train their bodies and to understand tango thoroughly.

We dance Argentine Tango in a traditional way which means that we seek to create a dance with constrast 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 contrast of the embrace. 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 innovate and improvise. We encourage all gender/roles, styles, and the application of tango to every music you love.

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 and clear communication.

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.

Our biomechanics courses train balance, strength and fluidity, so dancers can execute any movement, diagnose their own errors, assist partners, and learn faster from videos and other 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 tango movements inherited from the 1940s, codifed as elements of tango by the Cochabamba Investigation Group of the mid-1990s. Before Cochabamba tango was understood in groups of steps, or sequences. After Cochabamba, dancers were freed to compose from the basic elements.

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

The Improvisation-Lexicon is the whole vocabulary of tango. There are 25 distinct movements, each of which has many variations. We teach the Lexicon in our Masterclass and in person in our weekend workshops, covering the entire Lexicon in about one year.
