Robert’s teaching emphasizes the communication between partners that is at the heart of traditional close embrace tango. Tango is an improvised dance and in order to dance well dancers need to be able to ‘hear’ through their body. This requires attention to the foundations of good posture and movement that has benefits beyond the dance floor.
Following the principles of Robert’s own Argentine teachers dancers are taught to gradually build up their skills so that they do not simply repeat the steps or embellishments of another person’s dance. The aim is for dancers to develop their own personal dance from these principles that is comfortable and elegant. Robert’s students are known for the comfort of their embrace and enabling the follower to take an equal part in the dance.
