Precise Argentine Tango Instruction

Learn to use your body for tango. That's Biomechanics.
Learn to use tango for your creativity. That's Improvisation.

TangoForge Pedagogy

Applies professional scientific skills to analyzing tango movement and developing effective instructions. (aka Vio has a PhD and 10 years university teaching experience).

We are totally committed to finding instructions to enable every student to dance with perfect connection and interesting improvisation.

Our technique uses anatomically-correct biomechanical terminology.

We don't teach sequences, so there's nothing to memorize. Instead we teach you how to dance from the Elements of tango, finding your own variations, entrances, and exits.

 

Studying Online

Every teacher will tell you that you need to practice at home.

To do this you need precise instructions, and structured practice sessions.

Our online tools are designed for effective private practice.

We offer tech support in English, Castellano, Deutsch, and 日本語.

Take your time to ask deeper questions than you can in a live class. And get personal answers.

If you want to work with us live, meet us in our Berlin Studio, at a Tour Workshop, or for our Annual Seminar.

We also recommend

Don't expect great dancers to be great teachers.

Take a private lesson occasionally as a check-up, with the most ethical and articulate person you can find.

Take group classes with world class dancers to watch up close how they move.
