TangoForge London


Spend a weekend with us to deepen your connection and creativity

TangoForge is about:
• anatomically accurate biomechanical tools for sublime connection, clear communication, and dynamic range
• systems for improvisation
• open-minded tango: we encourage role exploration, applying Argentine Tango to the world heritage of music, and dancing the entire tango lexicon

I want you to know that you are not alone…

… neither in your dreams for tango nor in your frustrations.

My deepest desire is the same as all my students and friends … those who have yet to start dancing and those who dance a lot.

It’s partnership.

One thing I’ve learned on this quest, we need to:

Stop Waiting for Partners, and start Building them.

I’ve written a 10-step Action Plan.

Are you ready to find the Partners you want?
