TANGONETICS by Maria Blanco, creator!

TANGONETICS is a method to learn or improve your Tango dancing Skills that works within the natural possibilities of human anatomy and the idiosyncrasies of Tango


“To learn to connect with our body is a journey that never ends. 

Such a vast and and unexplored territory deserves our kind attention 

before we even try to change or bend it in any way. Our bodies are perfect 

the way they are to enjoy this dance born from vernacular roots" 

"Let's work on smart and useful tools to make the most out of it.”



A review of the research that was conducted to develop it will focus on : TANGO HISTORY, IDIOSYNCRASY, GENRE and STYLE, TECHNIQUE, MYTHS  and DOGMAS, STUDENT and TEACHER ROLES, PEDAGOGY, ART HISTORY.



2 CLASS COURSE/2 HOURS EACH

SUNDAY, JULY 12TH & 19TH

8 pm Eastern Time/ 5 pm Western time

9 pm Buenos Aires time A message from Maria: I will present the theoretical and exercise classes from a laboratory logic, a place where the teacher “... does not teach his pupils his knowledge, but orders them to venture into the forest of things and signs, to say what they have seen and what they think of what they have seen, to verify it and have it verified” (J.Rancière)  I am aware how challenging to leave our comfort zone can be, but I also know that once we move away from the already known, we enter a whole new territory.  Comfort never leads to new discoveries and only critical tools allow the path to emancipation.I will present all that I have researched so far in relation to tango from a variety of fields like history, semiotics, philosophy, psychoanalysis and movement techniques. A web of knowledge is the result of this 'dot-connection' methodology that provides a new paradigm on tango dancing.
