•    Active Social Dancers

This edition of Tango Lab is aimed at active social dancers in our local and neighboring communities.

To join us with confidence on Monday evening, you should be familiar and comfortable with dancing in a closer embrace — improvising tango in varying floor conditions, to a range of music, with a variety of partners ...

•    Role Balanced

In order to maximize everyone's experience and insure that we have an equal number of leaders and followers, you are encouraged to register and attend Tango Lab with a partner.

For single dancers interested in Tango Lab, please let us know your role, and we will do our best to match you with an appropriate single partner, if available ...

And while "traditional" gender roles are not a limitation — women who lead and men who follow are both welcome — we will plan on keeping to an even number of dancers so that everyone will have a partner throughout this seminar ...

•    Limited Enrollment

Thank you for your understanding that, because of the size of the room, we will only be able to accommodate a limited number of dancers for this intimate seminar in a private home with Tomás Corbalán+ Yamila Ivonne.

More About Tomás Corbalán + Yamila Ivonne




Yamila + Tomás

Tomás Corbalán + Yamila Ivonne were born in Argentina.

In both their dancing and their teaching, they seek an approach to Tango that is mindful, holistic, and integrated.

Drawing equally on sensitivity and experience, they aim to move well beyond any limiting notion of local or historical "styles" in order to create Tango with a more organic, healthy and effortless personal style.

In this way, as they explore ever more options and freedom for both partners in both roles, they seek to embody the very deepest values, traditions and essence of the milonga. In this shared space, we not only come together to celebrate with one another, we also cherish + honor the many gifts that we as individuals bring forward and offer to the dance. In Tango, we embrace our friends and fellow human beings — each one of us a unique person, dancer and artist, fully and authentically ourselves.

Tomás + Yamila believe the path toward this more essential Tango invites us to blend many layers, levels and aspects of connection — within our own bodies, minds + spirit, between partners and among couples, with history and presence, with the flowing music and with stillness + silence, with our imagination and a graceful acceptance of "what is" — uniting all of these many features and facets into one harmonious dance with no fragmentation.

 


 

Tomás + Yamila's recent teaching, both separately and together, includes ...

La Viruta, El Beso, El Esquinazo, El Juvenil, Villa Malcolm, La Catedral, Practica La Maria
