Tango Is Connection
A dialogue in motion. One in which we can connect with ourselves, another, the music and our surroundings.
Based on this idea, we ensure that your dance grows in quality, fluidity, subtlety and creativity.
From body awareness, to achieving a conscious connection, to giving you more possibilities such as finding your dance, finding your musicality and discovering tango delights. These are the main ideas of our work. We seek to personalize each class so that…
“I am moving forward gratifyingly fast with this team — they’d be a bargain at twice the price. Earthiness, presence and world-touring-grade style that meets with precision of concept, deep anatomical knowledge & real dance training. Whether you think kinetically or analytically, Pablo and Lya join to help to speed you and your unique body into the divine parts of tango porteño. Very easy to recommend.”

“My husband and I recently had the immense pleasure of taking a series of private tango classes with Lya and Pablo. The dedicated focus on quality of movement, precision, body mechanics and technique was clear and extremely productive. They both
exude warmth and humor and tactful patience.
A highly experienced, professional and absolutely delightful duo to learn from!”

“Su explicación es directa, clara, simple y a la vez muy profunda y llena de riqueza y te guían a desarrollar la propiocepción. Hacen un excelente equipo y por si fuera poco son re divertidos.”

“Everything about my dance has changed, in a very short time. Most amazing is that they solved a problem that I’d been trying to fix in other classes for years, but honestly, each session brings another revelation. They are intuitive about how I absorb information, very aware of what I need. Plus, I love the subtlety and stillness of their dance, which is exactly what I want to absorb. Super recommended!”
