TESO Technique, Elegance, Style & Originality

JorgeYMarielaWhat is the TESO Evaluation Program?

 Dancers in pursuit of qualified expert opinion, evaluation, and recommendation are invited to take their Tango to a higher level by participating in this exciting program.

Technique, Elegance, Style and Originality are principles of doctrine and teaching adhered to by Jorge Torres and will be the basis of evaluation.  Couples are invited to register and showcase presentations to receive a personal evaluation of their TESO.

The TESO Registration package is per person and includes two workshops, the indivdual entrance fee for the showcase presentation, an optional two hour practica, use of dressing rooms, as well as a professional evaluation by Jorge Torres and the panel of judges.

Registrants are not obligated to attend the designated TESO workshops, but it is highly recommended.

TESO Showcase Presentations will be formal (appropriate tango evening dress).

Showcase dances will be presented publicly during the Bright Lights Milonga.  The crowd will cheer, inspire and motivate you to achieve your optimum proficiency!

 The TESO Project was designed and created by Tango Fantástico with direct consultation and guidance from Jorge Torres.
