MONICA PAZ TEACHING
When: Wednesday 26 Sep 2018
Tango West proudly presents Mónica Paz, from Buenos Aires, for workshops and a practica
on Wed 26th September at the Redland Club BS6 6TN
Mónica Paz specialises in Milonguero style! She has developed a teaching style that enables the students to understand and develop the milonguero technique. Her experience comes from many years of dancing, teaching and absorbing this style directly from the old milongueros.
The key elements of Monica’s teaching are balance, posture, energy and connection with both the partner and the music. She focuses on sensitivity, in a close embrace, to enable the couple to develop a dance full of emotions. The dancers learn how to interpret the music together and achieve elegance fluidity and smoothness in the dance.
Notably, there are no complicated structures or figures. Monica focuses in depth on improvisation and guides dancers in acquiring the elements necessary to enrich their technique.
Mónica regularly teaches in Europe - Belgium and the Netherlands and in the USA – Washington DC, New York City and New Jersey. We are very pleased to invite her for the third time to Bristol, England this September.
Finally, a fundamental trait of Monica’s relies on her attention to the knowledge and culture of Tango. In June 2012 Mónica started a cultural project, MPTango in Buenos Aires, where “PractiMilonguro” operates. This conveys genuine information about social tango, tango etiquette, teaching, giving lectures, conducting practicas etc with the help of old milongueros. Visit Mónica’s website www.mptango.com for more details and for some wonderful interviews with Milongueros.
