In Tango Atelier, we discover together the magical feeling behind a hug and give ourselves over to the steps of the most original Argentine and Spanish dances.
We are passionate about dancing the tango, we show the most creative version of ourselves in tango teatro classes, we study tango escenario, and travel all around Argentina through its traditional dances, while we clap our castanets proudly in flamenco.
Tango – Milonga – Vals
Everything started with the need for communication among people, who didn’t know each other, and although they may not have had a common language, homeland, traditions or religion, they shared the same feelings, experiences, and hopes.. This is exactly what happened to the docklands and neighborhoods of Buenos Aires in the late 19th century. The need for communication created a dance, which would travel all around the world and would captivate everyone with its eroticism and passion. Milonga, which is one of the origins of tango, reminds us with its cheerful and fast pace the african roots of tango. Along with vals criollo, that came from Europe to take the steps and musical instruments of tango, they are all dances based on the “conversation” between the dance partners. A dancing dialog, which starts with the embrace and continues with the steps.
The ability to trust one another and walk together, share the same space, thoughts, melodies, desires, all these while being embraced are the greatest characteristics of these dances. They are the only dances that rely on the embrace.
A dance that knows no age, “tango – as the Argentines say – is always waiting for you…”. Ready to enchant you and transport you with its emotion and eroticism.
