Modern teaching technique. Traditional argentine tango.
One-on-One: Private Lessons with both Jose and Helen
A great way to learn for either a leader or follower. As a leader you have the opportunity to dance with Helen while Jose teaches you leaders technique and styling, alternatively if you are a follower you have the opportunity to dance with Jose while Helen teaches follower technique and styling.
For a Couple: Private Lessons with both Jose and Helen
Taking private lessons as a couple is a great way to learn and develop your dancing. You will work alternately with Jose and Helen, and each other. The teaching goes at your pace, whether you learn slower or faster than most people. As a couple you are able to work together, and with our help develop your tango technique.
Private Lessons with either Helen or Jose
If you would like to work solely on leading techniques (i.e. a leader working with Jose) or followers techniques (i.e. a follower working with Helen) this is a great option.
Private and Semi-Private Group Lessons
For those new to the tango, private lessons can be an excellent way to get comfortable with the fundamentals of tango before you join a group lesson or begin dancing tango socially. For those with a little more tango experience who perhaps are currently studying tango in group lessons, private lessons can be an excellent way to work on specific problem areas or to make sure that bad habits are recognized and stopped before they become ingrained. And for those more intermediate/advanced dancers, private lessons can be an excellent way to further refine your tango and perhaps even develop your performance skills. Private lessons offer a learning pace that is tuned to you in particular, which usually means a slightly accelerated learning pace over group classes. Private lessons are good for feeling what an excellent partner should feel like, because you get to dance directly with the instructor, who, in theory anyway, is pretty good at this stuff. Private lessons are also good for being coached on what you should feel like, since the instructor can give you feedback on a moment-to-moment basis.
