'17 Trip to Buenos Aires!

Hello students and friends!

I am organizing a 2-week trip between April 10 to 23, 2017 for a maximum of 8-10 people to the tango mecca, Buenos Aires!

This is a fantastic opportunity for those of you who have not been to Buenos Aires or have been finding navigating in the tango world alone intimidating (Spanish speaking, which neighbor to stay, where to take classes, etc).

I will help you schedule tango classes with known local instructors and practices (possibly with me), take you to milongas, organize day trips to local attractions, bring you shopping for best tango clothing and shoes, and experiencing local customs and a true porteño life. It’s safe, efficient, and with proven successes in the past. You will enjoy the benefits of some of the best tango teaching as well as an authentic tango life in Buenos Aires.

(It’s possible for you to stay longer than two weeks if you like and I can also help organize trips to other parts of Argentina.)

Please contact me if you are interested or you need more details.

Thank you, Gabriel

ME & TANGO

Argentine tango with Gabriel

Dance has been the love of my life for 40 years. My professional dancing experience started in 1978 when I joined Doina Bucurestiului the most prominent Romanian dance company back then. With Doina Bucurestiului I traveled and performed across Europe. I fell in love with tango on my first trip to Buenos Aires in 2002. And I was fascinated by the music and the dance of el tango. Since then, I have often traveled back to Buenos Aires competing in the World Championship of Tango (El Campeonato Mundial de Baile de Tango) and performing in famed milongas.

I have always been asked what styles of tango I prefer: traditional or nuevo, close or open embrace? I don’t have a preferred style, and I like to dance the way I hear the music and in the music. I see each dance unique for the song at the time and this is the beauty of Argentine tango.

TESTIMONIALS

“As a dancer [Gabriel] is fluid, refined, artistic with a formidable repertoire of styles and steps that he executes with smoothness, precision and agility. As a teacher he inspires and pinpoints my particular strengths and weaknesses by simultaneously correcting and challenging my dancing to new levels of achievement in a short period of time. Gabriel elevates the dance of tango by highlighting the intricacy of the partnership in a gentle but compelling manner revealing an intelligent depth of knowledge. I highly recommend Gabriel for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels of tango.” – Miriam Kass, San Jose CA

“Gabriel Monty is passionate about tango and about teaching this beautiful, complex dance to others.  He consistently demonstrates a high level of professionalism in his interactions with students, in his clear and organized delivery of content, and in his striving to improve his own knowledge of the dance.  His generous nature, tact, support, friendliness and quick laughter also make his classes exceptionally pleasurable as well as productive. My husband and I have been dedicated students of Gabriel for over five years, taking both private and public classes, and can say, without hesitation, that he is the best that Vancouver can offer, for dancers at any level.” – Marly Haller, Vancouver BC

“Gabriel Monty is an excellent tango instructor, very good communicator, detail oriented and patient. He focuses on important details of the posture and technique and gives precise feedback and explanations. He gradually challenges the student to more complicated and demanding aspects of the dance. With Gabriel as your guide, you will have a short learning curve and a rewarding tango experience.” – Simona Necula, Oakland CA

“Gabriel was in South Bay California for few weeks, I was delighted to attend his workshops and also took private lessons. He is very passionate about tango and patient to his students. He is calm and kind, very important for those who are beginners and just learn baby steps like myself. And I also learned to listen and follow on different layers of music wich are the essence to this art. I Definitely highly recommend Gabriel for all levels of tango learners.” – Wendy, Sunnyvale CA

“… [Gabriel] takes you from the level you are and does not overwhelm you with details, but slowly focuses on different aspects of the dance, advancing one step at a time. It is amazing how much I learned in such a short period of time, not only steps and style and posture and balance and attitude, but also listening to different layers of the music and enjoying the connection with my partner. Excellent teacher! Consider yourself lucky if you can get the chance to learn Argentine Tango from Gabriel Monty.” – Carmen Stanciulescu, Port Coquitlam BC

“[Gabriel’s] clarity and calm have an immense impact on the student. He is very easy person to get along with and has the ability to make difficult things easy. He is considered one of the best and most sought after teachers of Argentine tango in Vancouver and British Columbia. And yet, he is so humble: when he comes to milongas he dances with the seasoned dancers and with all his student, regardless of how much they know. This balance is rarely seen with other dance teachers. …” – Palma Kulic, Vancouver BC

“Gabriel Monty’s teaching is of the highest order. He is not only a very accomplished dancer himself but also a fantastic teacher and really knows how to pass on his knowledge. He is very dedicated to his students and never tires to analyze, demonstrate and explain. Why go to Buenos Aires with teachers like him right at home?’ – Jutta Wiemers, Vancouver BC

“Gabriel Monty is by far the best teacher of Tango in Low Mainland. He has an excellent inside-out technical knowledge of the dance, perfect understanding of the workings of the body and years of teaching experience.  Gabriel is very generous in sharing all his knowledge, patient with his students and has a pleasant and easy-going manner of relating to the students of every level, from beginners to advanced. …” – Marina Sonkina, Vancouver BC

“I have taken lessons from many teachers over the years and Gabriel Monty is my absolute favourite. I wish I had found him earlier in my dance life!” – Linda Fowler, Victoria BC
