About the classes:
Every class will be given a set of steps and we will all work as many solutions as possible at various points in the sequence. The reason is that we wholeheartedly hope in people incorporating the principles and applying them in dance as opportunity arises, each in their own way. We believe in understanding the concept behind the movement and the music, rather than memorizing sets of steps.

The classes continue to follow the elegant Villa Urquiza style of the Argentine Tango Salon.
For those who don’t know where the name Villa Urquiza comes from: it is a neighbourhood in the Northern part of Buenos Aires. Here, the local dancers have developed a beautiful and elegant style of dancing which was popular in the 40′ and 50′ and is presently regaining popularity due to its elegance, smoothness and precision in dancing.
