Our philosophy

What is Tango?

We have learned Tango is a shortcut to our essence. Tango is a therapy, an addiction, a lifestyle and for some people it is the representation of sensuality. The expression of elegance and beauty of two bodies in movement. Whatever meaning you give to Tango, we are sure you will enjoy your trip. Whatever reason led you start Tango, if you keep on dancing, you will soon discover how tango is so much more than just a dance…

Our focus in Tango

Tango is a complex world. Some of the components of Tango matter the most to us: they guide our path, inspire how we dance and infuse the way we teach.

Connection

Connection is the most distinctive and intense feeling in dancing tango. Each individual has a unique body and energy, therefore each embrace and connection is unique. We aim at guiding and inspiring students in their research to discover their own perfect embrace.

When we dance, our ultimate goal is to be able to leave our partner with a good memory of the moment we shared. This is why we find it important to learn how to communicate attention, dedication and trust in our embrace.

Musicality

Through our experience as social dancers, we have become aware of the patterns and the structures of the music we dance on, which allows us to improvise freely on it. Music has always been an important part of both our lives, for that reason, we constantly work on expanding our ways of feeling and expressing the music. We found out that there are so many options, either towards the inside or the outside of the couple. Most importantly, we are inspired by what Chicho says: the movements should not go ‘on’ or ‘in’ the music, but rather, it is the music that flows through the body and brings out the movement.

Technique

There is a perfectly organic way of doing any movement. We believe that for the sake of control and aesthetics of the body in motion, proper technique, posture and axis is fundamental. Developing the awareness of the body and understanding motion as an organic flow helps everyone to feel more confident and in control of each step one takes. A precise analysis of the movements definitely helps to act and react properly on the dancefloor, as well as provide comfort for ourselves and our partner, to be able to dance for hours without stopping!

Both your axis and your karma are your responsibility, you don’t want to put the weight of it on someone else. 

– Graciela González

Dynamics

Among all the different styles of Tango, we can say that our background and fundamental technique is definitely traditional, however our dancing experience is much wider than the one represented by the old paradigm. We feel like representing an evolution of the old styles by assembling ‘old school’ elements and dynamics with new ones coming from the modern marathon style.

Some of the elements and figures we have extensively worked on are circular dynamics and boleos. We always experiment with new combinations and look for secrets, innovative techniques and fun ways to play with the music.

Regular group classes

Get familiar with our program and join the WhatsApp groups for each level to get updated in real time

When?

Thursdays:

19h00-20h15 Intermediate

20h15-21h30 Advanced

Where?

Divina Milonga,

Lachdach Pling, Steinerstr. 5, 

Munich, Germany

For who?

Everyone,

from complete beginners to

advanced dancers.

Every Thursday, we choose one theme to improve, perfect and explore.

In the intermediate class, we focus on exploring and/or strengthening the fundamentals, the technique, as well as proposing easy ideas to use directly in social dancing. In the second class, we assume that the fundamentals are mastered, so we only quickly revisit the technique, before adding more complex combinations and exploring creative ideas around the topic of the day. 

For intermediates who want a very fast improvement, they have all the tools necessary to join both classes to push their limits.

For advanced dancers, joining the first class can also be a good way to refresh and strengthen basics.

Special Workshops

We give some very special opportunities during the year to our students.

Some are densely-packed 90 minutes workshops where we push your limits on a specific topic, offer theoretical and practical knowledge about the subject, and lead you towards the discovery of new forms of expression.

Full immersion weekends

This type of special event is made of 3-6 workshops in a weekend. The idea is to go deep into a topic or a new perspective. We explore technique in all its details, for leaders and followers, give tips on how to improve balance, aesthetics and awareness. Then, in couples, we develop dynamics and movements, starting simple to feel the embrace, implement the technique we learnt earlier, and gradually increase the level of complexity to give interesting ideas to dancers of all levels.

Evolve your tango

Private Lessons

What to expect

Most of our students choose to go through a private program with us. We always personalise your private program depending on your wishes and your needs.

We give time and dedication to go deep into the details of the dance, in order to perfect the quality of the movements and inspire you to express the music in all its emotions while you dance.

Results

You will gradually feel that you are gaining control upon your movements, your creativity shouts new possibilities, and your partners do notice it! In this intense study you’ll face your limits, become more aware of your body and your partner. A student of us once said that it is like an alchemic work dressed up with Tango moves.

We’ll be able to expand your horizons and anchor your confidence in how you dance and behave on and off the dancefloor.

Your appointment

Contact us and find the best options when it comes to the day and the time. The classes are given in Candidplatz, we’ll communicate the exact address in time for the appointment.

Klasse Unterrichte, super Lehrer die inhaltlich und motorisch fordern aber auch fördern! Man bekommt immer das, was man braucht und so viel man kann, bzw. immer ein bisschen mehr, sodass man immer im "Lernmodus" bleibt und das individuell auf die Situation und Person zugeschnitten. Ich lerne seit etwa 7 Jahren von und mit Duddie und für mich gibt es keinen besseren! Zusammen mit Salumé ein super Team welches sich super ergänzt, noch individueller, und noch flexibler ist. Sich ständig weiterbildet und einen den Tango nicht nur lehrt sondern auch spüren und leben lässt! Der Tango ist ein lebenslanger Entwicklungsprozess und für mich der Ausgleich im Alltag. Ich habe es nie bereut mit Duddie zu lernen bzw. Duddie & Salumé und lerne immer noch neues und verbessere gleichzeitig meine Grundlagen und bestehendes. Ich freue mich immernoch auf jeden Unterricht und hoffe, dass die beiden mich noch lange auf meinem Weg, in meiner Entwicklung begleiten werden. Duddie & Salumé - für mich eine klare Empfehlung!

Since I was a student of David for several years I can recommand his teaching a lot. Searching with him for the right posture, soft embrace, dynamics in the music etc. was a very joyfully. He has a great awareness for his students and tries to enable everyone to find his own tango identity.

One of the best places in Munich (and beyond) to learn and experience tango! I have been training with Salomé and David for a couple of months now attending private lessons, workshops and regular group classes. Both are incredibly kind, passionate and knowledgable and, most importantly, have the very rare gift of conveying all of these qualities directly to their students. They give detailed, richly evocative instructions and provide ample feedback to allow every student to progress to the best of their abilities and at their own pace. Lessons with them are a true joy and highly challenging in the best way, always fun and never running the risk of becoming frustrating or drifting off into mindless technique exercises. It is basically impossible for me to reach an impasse while training with them because for every concept they teach they offer plenty of explanations, examples and perspectives so that understanding and execution of even complex ideas is guaranteed to emerge organically. Salomé and David truly live for the art of tango and are sure to inspire the same excitement in you! I can wholeheartedly recommend them and plan on studying with them for a long time to come. Do give them a try!

Thank you so much for your wonderfully supportive lessons in which I learned a lot. From all the Tango teachers I had, you’re the ones who taught me the most important things! Your extraordinary ability to analyse movements always helped me to take my dancing to the next level. And still, even though you’re hard workers the lessons are filled with joy and lightness. You’re always conveying the essence of Tango!
