When: Thursday, February 6th through Sunday, February 9th of 2020
Where: Dennis Cante Tango Academy
Here is the topic of this special seminar:
“Deep Basics” Seminar
The Material will be a special program that contains a revision of the most important Argentine tango choreographic ideas, presented through combined sequences that we consider “interesting”. Why are we considering them “interesting combinations”?
Because of two reasons:
1- These “combinations” are setting specific coordination problems and the solution notably helps to improve general dance control.
2- We truly believe these combinations have, in addition, a particular beauty, sometimes focused on the “shape”, sometimes on “dynamics”, sometimes on “structure”.
Then, through these above-mentioned sequences, we arrive to the detection and isolation of basic problems of the tango dance that are later deeply analyzed and studied.
It is known that any movement, however simple it may seem, becomes extremely complex when it is deeply studied through all its components. That is what we are going to do – we will identify those components and train their coordination to achieve the mastery of the movement. At the same time, we will demonstrate these elements within the sequence and use it as an “example” to show how it is always very useful and applicable in other variations.

About Gustavo Naivera:
Dancer and internationally-ranking choreographer Gustavo is also the pioneer of a new technique of teaching the tango, now famous worldwide. After already 30 years of experience and touring all over the world, he imparts his knowledge with conceptual clarity and a rich technique. Being an exceptional analyst and investigator, his abilities have revolutionized tango dancing towards the end of the 20th century. Those who best know the world of tango dancing also appreciate his knowledge of tango dancing history and styles which he knows how to materialize through the creativity of his improvisations. The critics in Bs. As. said: “…You could say that three stylistic tendencies contend for supremacy: Urquiza’s style, Almagro’s style, and Naveira’s style …” (Clarín 8/8/99, Buenos Aires Argentina).
About Giselle Anne:
Giselle has demonstrated her abilities as a dancer and choreographer by performing in shows such as Tango Argentino, Tango Pasión, Mariano Mores, and Los Solistas de D’Arienzo. She has performed in America, Europe, and Japan, and during the five years of her residence in Spain (1992-97), she worked intensely with the tango: creating her own ballet, establishing a school, and inaugurating the “Casa del Tango” (Tango House) in Sevilla. Now with 25 years of experience, the presence and solidity of her dance are balanced perfectly with the beauty of her movements, and this ensures that her dancing is always at the highest level.
We are so happy and we can’t wait to have them in Los Angeles
