Tango Domingo with Diego Lanau

DiegoSueTango Domingo with Diego Lanau

June, July, August, September and October 2011

 

At Tango Fantastico we have been very lucky:  All Summer long, Diego Lanau has shared his expertise on Musicality.  A total of Five Tango Domingo workshops included listening to and dancing to both slow and fast orchestras, orchestras with different arrangements of the same musical composition, movements to fit the tempo, giros, boleos, sacadas and barridas.

 

Diego has a penchant for technique and clear leading.  His style is traditional and quite specific.  Now a familiar face in our midst, we express our appreciation for his quality contribution to our understanding of Tango and look forward to his return.

 

Diego is now visiting his home in Buenos Aires for the holiday season and will return to the Bay Area in January 2012.

Tantalizing Torres Tango

Jorge TorresJorge Torres was here!

"Thank you, Maestro, for your wonderful inspiration and teaching, we will apply ourselves and practice the techniques you demonstrated so beautifully 'one million times'  (per your recommendation) before you return.

~ Sue Flanagan  & the South Bay students

  Reflections of Jorge from students:

"I find he guides leaders from his decades of experience in tango and then challenges them with patterns that simply and efficiently test their real knowledge of the technique being taught."

~ E.C.B., June 2010

“As always, my lesson with Jorge was a transcendental experience. When else do you get to spend time exploring your inner being for your true self, expressed through dancing. I always come away from these lessons with Jorge with a much more balanced, relaxed approach to dancing and to life.”

~ S. M., June 2010
