TangoIntensivo™ Session “A” (#52 May 2018)
- are longing to improve your tango in a permanent & powerful way inside the rich tango mecca of Buenos Aires…
- are tired of not being able to dance with “the good dancers”…
- want to focus your tango training with one world-class instructor and her carefully trained assistants for an intensive 20-hour period of instruction in a single week…
- want to enter “the milonga experience” of Buenos Aires with peers who share a common orientation towards improving their tango…
- want a training environment that will alternately thrill & challenge you to reach your next level…
THEN THIS IS FOR YOU!!!!
We are looking for a special group of dancers who want to pursue tango mastery in a new and different way. Join us for five days of intensive study in Buenos Aires – or, to maximize the value of your trip, do what most of your fellow students do, and sign up for both programs for a total of ten days of tango training bliss! Work intensively on your tango with a gender-balanced group of carefully trained Assistants under the guidance and direction of world-class tango teacher LUCIANA VALLE, one of the most talented, insightful and energetic tango teachers Buenos Aires has produced.
We first started working with Luciana (a.k.a. “Hurricane Lucy”) in 1998, and ever since she has been a touchstone for our study of the tango experience. Her warm enthusiasm, penetrating insight into tango structure and dynamics, and deep skill and experience at dancing both the leader and follower roles has brought her well-deserved intercontinental fame in the world of tango.

TangoIntensivo™ Session “C” (#43 November 2015)
“OUR STAFF, YOUR PARTNERS”
Our program guarantees YOU WILL DANCE EXCLUSIVELY WITH MEMBERS OF OUR TRAINED STAFF, the acclaimed TangoIntensivo™ Assistants, for the entire 20-hour duration of each program.
This makes our program VERY DIFFERENT from any tango training experience you are likely to have had already.
People often don’t quite digest the impact of this, according to our feedback, so we’ll repeat it just to make this point absolutely clear: you only dance with your fellow students AFTER-HOURS, if at all!! YOUR PARTNERS ARE THE STAFF – AND WHAT A STAFF THEY ARE! This provides you with the opportunity to focus on YOUR learning process rather than navigating through the difficulties that can often arise when your usual partner or a fellow student is also struggling with you. Our Assistants are selected from among the many talented dancers working with Luciana in Buenos Aires through her acclaimed “El Motivo” practica & school. All of them are active social dancers in the Buenos Aires tango scene, and many have professional tango careers of their own.
REPEAT CUSTOMERS ARE THE BEST TESTIMONIAL
From February 2005 through November, we’ve completed 51 of these sessions, and our list of hundreds of satisfied students continues to grow. We’re very flattered that, despite the cost of airfares from the USA and multiple other tango travel options to choose from, we get an incredible amount of repeat business.
Student comments from previous TangoIntensivo™ Sessions
“It was a breakthrough week for me. It allowed me to develop a very deep understanding of tango & has given me a solid base from which to catapult my dancing to the next level. You guys put together a great program with Luciana. I plan on returning…I took out a Chicho video last night & all of a sudden…I could see everything he was doing.”
“I’ve taken intensive tango workshops all over the world from all the best…this was the absolute best workshop experience I’ve ever had!”
“These sessions are an incredible experience of deep systematic structural exploration in tango, combined with the opportunity to work closely in partnership with an absolutely fantastic group of followers…rotating among them, experiencing their patience and welcoming smiles, really made the difficult parts much easier.”
“…what an AWESOME TangoIntensivo™ session…I feel privileged to be a part of this historical occasion…don’t ask me why it feels that way, but what the 3 of you put together was just incredible. Especially wonderful was the opportunity to work with Argentine dancers [as followers], the meticulous care & timing with which all the classes were designed & the quality of the material offered.”
“The program once again exceeded my expectations & again took me to a different level in my dance. There is nothing like this program & I continuously tell everyone I can that this is the program to take……there cannot be too much to say about the level of work that goes into developing this program. My hat goes off to Luciana, Brian & Deb…I look forward to my continuing attendance…”
“I really loved the program…Luciana’s knowledge of the information is incredible…she did a superb job. Brian & Deb were unbelievable. I know you did so much behind the scenes…with such style & class it went unnoticed in a good way.”
“Knowing as I came in each day that I was going to push my limits with such a beautiful group of followers to help me get there – so many treasured memories of so many wonderful dances.”
“…the challenge & joy of dancing with some very high level leads & feeling their musicality & the unexpected little plays they made during the dance, the high level of connection that they brought to the dance, the chance to really work more deeply with some of these ideas & techniques….also of course the clarity & specificity of Luciana’s teaching & the way she dissects the structure of the dance. Luciana is always a stand out.”
“…my embrace is more secure, masculine & dynamic.”
“Dancing with the guys in class, the musicality…is just so incredible feeling what this dance can be…working intensively with Luciana, getting the clarity & depth of understanding & passion that she brings to it.”
“The best way I can sum up this week? Well, I got cramps in my smile muscles!”
“Other than of course Luciana & dancing with the guys, I would say (the best part of this experience for me was) feeling my body waking up again….it has been a while since I have felt that total satisfaction of dancing. I want more!”
FOUR SEPARATE PROGRAMS with LIMITED ENROLLMENT for MAXIMUM BENEFIT!
Luciana has reorganized and expanded her material at the intermediate/advanced level into four distinct programs: “A”, “B”, “C” and “D”. The differences between the programs are the topics covered, but the level is the same (intermediate/advanced) in all four sessions.
As before with this new organization, some people will benefit somewhat from taking the “A” program before taking “B”, “C” or “D”. This means that you don’t have to take “B” before “C” or “D”, but if you haven’t yet, we recommend taking “A” before any of the others, especially for those unfamiliar with Luciana’s methods.
However, don’t be discouraged! Many have happily started the sequence of Sessions with “B”, “C”, or “D”. The opportunity to take ANY of the programs with our superbly trained staff, working at your current level, should not be missed. If your schedule does not permit taking the “A” program first, and you still wish to participate in one of the other programs, please contact us to discuss your plans.

We’ll only begin holding a spot for you AFTER we receive an email confirming that you’ve mailed your check OR AFTER we’re notified of your purchase by PayPal.
One half of the Registration Fee will be refunded if a refund request is received by four weeks before the start of class. No refund requests will be accepted after this deadline.

In ALL refund cases, PayPal fees are not refundable after your initial payment has cleared.
>>> TRAVEL INSURANCE IS YOUR FRIEND!! <<<
Because the total costs of airline travel to Buenos Aires and paying tuition for our programs can be substantial, WE STRONGLY SUGGEST that you explore the possibility of securing appropriate “traveler’s vacation trip insurance” if you are concerned that you may not be able to attend the program you are paying for (for example, if you are concerned about any injury issues that may prevent you from participating), and want to be able to get a refund under a variety of circumstances.
Programs typically sell out before the advance registration deadline. However, we reserve the right to cancel or restructure the programs up until one week following the advance registration deadline (about two months before the start of class). In the unlikely event of cancellation of any TangoIntensivo™ sessions, registration fees will be refunded in full.
TANGO TRAVEL ADVICE
Your tuition pays for your classes and your partners – you’ll arrange your own airfare, meals and accommodations – but over the years we’ve developed a treasure trove of valuable information we share with registered students about securing good solutions to many travel needs!
