Good teachers would tell you, and from the very first lesson, that tango is not only about steps, and how important it is to think about musicality. But for dancers it is difficult to know what musicality is, and there are so many steps to think about that you can forget the most important aspect – the music.
That's why Pablo and Naomi made this video on musicality.
Canaro – the pop of tango!
Francisco Canaro is usually associated with the beginning of tango music, but he remained one of the most famous tango artists for a long time, not only after his debut. His constant fame (and the fortune, which came with it) was mainly due to his ability to adapt the music to the fashions of the moment, which resulted in thousands of tangos. That’s also why he is considered the “pop” of tango.

TANGO BOOT CAMP – INTENSIVE TANGO WEEKEND with 4 WORLD-CLASS TEACHERS:
Stefania Colina & Juan Martin Carrara – Laisa Souza & Martin Ojeda
The two couples are used to teach together, they share the same vision and approach of tango and fundamental technique, but they have developed different styles and teaching methods. They are both considered at the top of their art by colleagues and students alike around the world. Take any aspect of the dance, think about who you would want to learn it from, and without a doubt one of these four teachers will be at the top of your list.
This is a unique opportunity to get the multi-world class-teachers experience you normally only get in a festival or in Buenos Aires at a premium price - but on your doorstep and at the cost of a regular workshop.
An extension of Maral & Mariano Argentine Tango School. - http://www.maralmariano.com/
