Class at Cooperativa on 1/12/14

For those who were in class on Sunday 1/12 at Milonga Cooperativa I am posting the demo. Thanks to Ed, Paula, and the cooperativa gang for having us. Ed videotaped the demo and didn’t know that it would be useful to all of us!

The class was on Barridas y Ganchos. A big topic to cover in a 1 hour class but a fun combination to keep our brains active. I think learning more advanced combinations can often just remind us of our fundamentals – ie: where is my axis? where is yours?

If you are interested in having Rommel and I at the Milonga Cooperativa to teach a class please let the Cooperativa know.

Rommel and Daniela Demo from 1/12/14

SPECIAL GUESTS JULY 13 – 15, 2012 – DO NOT MISS!!!!

I can’t even begin to tell you how exciting it will be to have this couple with us for workshops and for an evening of amazing performances.

Rommel and I first saw Virginia and Christian dance by accident at a Practica in Buenos Aires. We were on 1 of our tango tours and Virginia y Christianthe students were a little tired so we decided to change the itinerary and go to a practica. We didn’t know much about the scene or that there would be a performance. I remember that I was so impressed by Christian and Virginia precision and line, not to mention their exquisite musicality.

The next couple of years we called on them to teach group classes to our tour group. In deciding teachers for the groups I invite teachers who we won’t see in the US or who we haven’t seen yet. Virginia and Christian have always been a perfect match for our groups. They teach like they dance, precise and generous. They are calm and kind.

We have admired their dancing since then. Rommel particularly likes Christian’s musicality and enrosque turns. These seem to be his signature move. We are so excited to have them in our city and we hope that you will not miss out. I have been getting emails from several organizers throughout the US who wish that they could have this exquisite couple in their city. We are 1 of ONLY 3 stops on their visit to the US.

I promise that you will not be disappointed. Come see them perform at the milonga on Saturday July 14th.
