Music: "La clavada", Juan D'Arienzo 1940/1942.

In 1936 Juan D'Arienzo successfully appeared in the disputable territory of popularity. He was just 35 years old, one less than Julio De Caro –stylistically placed on the other end of the musical horizon of tango- he had been a star since 1924 and D'Arienzo started to become one when Pablo Osvaldo Valle took him to the brand new El Mundo radio station. What in no way meant, at all, that D'Arienzo were a late tango player. Like almost all the musicians in those days, he started in tango as a boy. With Angel D'Agostino on piano, the bandoneon player Ernesto Bianchi -aka Lechuguita- and Ennio Bolognini – Remo´s and Astor´s brother – he played, at a very early age, in very insignificant theaters.

Relaxation

The way to be in control is to just let it go. If you hold it with tension, that is not control; it is just that: hold and tension. If you hold it, it will explode somewhere because you put to much pressure on it.
Dancing itself should be your tool to relax.

Body as a medium: Lead and follow.

You have to let your body to be a medium for the waves that come from my body to travel through your body towards the floor.
You distribute your body weight between the floor and your partner. The proportions in this distribution are not fixed. Dance is dynamism, so these proportions change all the time in a musical/rhythmical way.

Planning a trip to Buenos Aires? Contact us...we can help you!
We are always trying to offer the best efficiency and quality in all what we do.
We offer a Tango Tour to Buenos Aires every year and we take many people with us,
but some people can not join us because the time for their vacation is different or many other reasons,
so they travel to Buenos Aires by themselves.
Since we are from Argentina and we have people over there who work with us, we can offer help to all
those people who plan a trip to Buenos Aires.
We can arrange a convenient package including flight tickets, hotel, and excursions, or if you just need
someone over there to help you out we can put you in contact with the right person, also if you want
to know about best teachers in Buenos Aires, taxi dancers, or milongas, please contact us.
