» Intensive tango classes
After twenty years' teaching experience, I can say that an intensive course has proven to be the best way either to improve your skills or to quickly acquire the basics. Lidia Ferrari.
The courses are tailored to the needs of tango-learners of any level - beginners, intermediate, and advanced.
· Beginners' courses:
· A good teaching is the shortest way to learn Tango. We assure you will get the best ground elements to acquire and develop your own style.
· Intermediate and advanced levels:
- The aim is to help each dancer express his/her own personality in dancing. After an introductory analysis, we focus on making his/her style neat while helping the dancer to get over difficulties and improve his/her abilities.
- A lot of tango dancers wish to improve their posture, walking style, figures, that is to say, they wish to get their own style. A lot of people have learnt steps and figures but they cannot lead or follow properly that are essentials to good dancing.
- The steps and figures are not the soul of tango. Rather, I would say that the very heart of tango dancing is the style, posture, music interpretation, walking style, the relationship between dancing partners.
- The plan of the course is developed on the needs of each learner.
· We especially encourage students to take the intensive course because
· We can arrange intensive courses according to your needs (from 1 day to 15 of duration), with daily classes of 1 to 5 hours.
- Information is concentrated and develops in forms of growing complexities.
- Concentration speeds up learning and makes it intense.
- You revise mistakes and develop abilities all the time.

» General Plan of Working by Lidia Ferrari
Two important premises:
- At beginning and intermediate levels, we focus on the main elements of the structure of Tango in order to allow the dancer to develop any style (milonguero, nuevo, de salón, danza, etc).
- Being Tango a dance for two, we mostly work on the dynamic of the movements of the couple (also when the class is individual)
a. the dancer's difficulties are observed to work on them.
b. Exercises to help the body to adapt to the different movements, postures and figures to understand the dynamics of the dancing couple.
We focus on the basic aspects of tango:
- the dynamics of the dancing couple: leading and following;
- Posture, balance and embrace of the couple.
- Dislocation, projection and resistance. Axis and balance. Balance of the axes in the different styles.
- Interpreting the music. The different orchestras.
- The dancer's sensibility in dancing.
