Today is day 4 of my Buenos Aires trip. I am tired. Exhausted, to be honest. But I'm bursting with emotions, experiences and study material. Beyond it all, I am really inspired, and that's what I really came here for. But one thing at a time.

In this post I will write a...

Tango is my life. Sounds pompous but it's true. I've quit my architecture career to dance, teach, and live tango, because I love it and I believe I can share something wonderful with other people through my tango. I am completely happy and in love with this dance, this...

A few days ago one student of mine asked me to write an article on active following. What is it, how I understand it and what it gives us. It's great to see people interested in my take on active following, as I am a big proponent of it!

I had an interesting discussion with a local London tanguero. It was based on one of the videos I posted, where I was practising forward ochos by myself. I will by the way soon post a Let's Make It Personal video about solo practice and what value it has in a partner d...

I had a chat with a friend the other day. Random tango stuff, milongas, styles, what to teach and where to learn, etc.

And then my friend mentioned one thing that got me thinking: that he doesn't like to take regular classes, only privates or workshops and pre-milonga c...

Five times in my tango life, I've been either thinking of quitting tango, or dramatically reducing its impact and amount in my life. The most recent one is exactly now, when I'm writing these words.

Tango is not for faint-hearted. With years you grow thick skin, and yet...

Tango can be a beauty and a beast.

Bad news: there is nothing we can do to change that. We enjoy total bliss, and next week it can be the worst experience ever.
