throughout tango structure and its principal figures.

Applying off-axis to get dynamic movement, fluidity and personal timing

From Gustavo and Giselle Anne:

We perceive the inclination of the follower's axis, as a tool capable of bringing dynamism to the dance, which means that apart from bringing action and risk, it solves a number of traditionally static situations of the tango dance, providing more harmony and continuity to the movement.

We will work in this seminar on how to use this tool / the inclination of the follower's axis / in all kind of steps and situations, analyzing posture, arms, hips, resistance of the Leader, inclination degrees of the Follower, etc. in order to imprint the new dynamics onto the dance.'

Saturday drop in workshop

Figuras para el tango social

SATURDAY 10/19/2019, 4:30 - 6pm

Social Tango is nowadays popular worldwide as the most common and attractive way of tango dancing.

Since the social aspects of the tango are so important, we will work on specific steps that perfectly fit not only the style but also respect the ronda / navigation line to emphasize and support the correct codes, behavior and attitude embedded into social tango.

Sunday drop in workshop

Estructura del giro

SUNDAY 10/20/2019, 4:30 - 6pm

Traditionally, we have heard many times among milongueros statements like: 'the woman learns to dance tango when she learns to turn...'. Well... there must be some truth there, but let's be honest ... it sounds too absolute.

Let's paraphrase into: 'when we really want to learn to dance tango reasonably well, it seems quite necessary to study the turn as a basic foundation.'

Guardia vieja milongueros reacted by intuition. Today that is not enough. We need to understand the structure, the rhythm, the size of the steps, the way to execute the turns to really learn how to manage them...

No videos of Instructors are allowed, but you are encouraged to take the video notes of yourself and your partner or of other couple after getting their approval of course. Please do not post any of those videos but rather treat them as personal notes.

This is an open level class. Consider signing up with the partner that you are comfortable working/practicing/learning with.

Gustavo Naveira and Giselle Anne met in 1995 and formed a tango couple, bringing together their already-vast experience with the dance.

Gustavo and Giselle continue to teach and perform worldwide, but are now based in Boulder, CO, where they founded and run the Boulder Tango Studio. They invite dancers from all over to join them in Boulder for their yearly festival, which takes place in October each year.

Gustavo Naveira deserves more credit for the resurgence and renewed popularity of tango (from the 1980s through today) than any other dancer /teacher /performer /choreographer. Since discovering the dance in the early 1980s, Gustavo has worked tirelessly to bring tango to new audiences, to evolve the dance to a higher level of technique and of structural complexity, and to develop a pedagogy that makes dancing tango at a better level possible for more people. He has also strived continuously to insure that further development of the dance be grounded in a solid historical foundation. For this reason, his dancing always has a classic look, even while he is executing the most modern and surprising steps. As early as 1999, the main Argentine newspaper Clarin stated, “you could say that three stylistic tendencies contend for supremacy [in tango]: Urquiza's style, Almagro's style and Naveira's style.”

Giselle Anne has demonstrated her abilities as a dancer and choreographer by performing in shows such as Tango Argentino, Tango Pasión, Mariano Mores, and Los Solistas de D'Arienzo. She has performed in America, Europe and Japan. During the five years of her residence in Spain (1992-1997), she worked intensely with tango, creating her own ballet, founding a school and inaugurating the “Casa del Tango” (Tango House) in Sevilla.
Now with 25 years of experience, the presence and solidity of her dance are balanced perfectly with the beauty of her movements, and this ensures that her dancing is always at the highest level.

  • "They are professional, passionate, graceful, and true masters of their trade. They are patient and take the time to break down the steps to ensure one truly grasps and understands the motions, not just mechanically follow and repeat the steps."
