What is it all about?

“Years of research, based on my experiences in different cultures, in different parts of the world, have brought me directly to the essence of Tango. This seminar focuses on using the latest techniques and the precise analysis of musicality in Tango to get you there, too.
The seminar is didactically prepared for instant understanding of the method I′m using. It incorporates musical exercises and the technical applications in sequences, as well as the body communication that allows you to interpret, and capture, the expression of the dance. The objective is to touch those deep, internal subjects that connect directly with the inner Tango in each of us.
These are some of the topics that we’ll tackle together with open minds; that will keep us searching for solutions and paths”.
Mariano “Chicho” Frumboli
