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
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.
