Precise Argentine Tango Instruction

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

Our instruction is precise, effective, and systematic.

We teach tango from the elements, without sequences or memorization. Our goal is to empower dancers to experience creativity.

We’ve spent years figuring out how to directly teach delicious sensation and fluid motion with scientific biomechanics. Our 5 Biomechanical Tools enable students to diagnose their own errors, assist partners, and learn faster from videos and other teachers.

We are devoted to the principle that tango can be communicated in a way that everyone can understand and implement, so that teaching is not a cult of personality and metaphor but an objective, verifiable toolbox that students can use on their own. We encourage all gender/roles, styles, and the application of tango to every music you love.

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 with the most ethical and articulate person you can find.

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