Natalia & Agustin (Buenos Aires) [video] Together they have based their teaching methodology on the analysis of movement, creating a study of tango that starts from the deepest essence of movement and grows into the complexity and subjectivity of music interpretation. Building upon each student’s knowledge of body awareness and connection and using simple and rational explanations and exercises, they have taught and guided hundreds of people to expand their body awareness and knowledge about dance, achieving fluid, authentic, harmonic, comfortable, and natural movements.
