Tango Conditioning Class to help you find
your Inner Tanguera/o
While Rose Vierling takes time off for maternity leave, we are delighted to welcome Luz Castiñeiras as our guest teacher for Tango Conditioning starting September 30 through March 2018.
Luz moved to the Bay Area from Buenos Aires in 2011. Since then she’s been dancing, performing and teaching at various venues.
Luz brings a unique approach and background to her tango technique classes. She first connected to tango as a music therapist working with cancer patients in Buenos Aires. During that time she collaborated on a 5-year research project that studied tango as therapy.
“I became interested in looking at how tango practice can change lives,” says Luz, “and how it can help you learn to move your body in different ways.”
In addition to tango, Luz has studied ballet and modern dance, and she integrates these forms into her tango practice. In her classes, she creates a friendly, inviting atmosphere and invites feedback from her students which she uses to tailor the class to their needs.
Tango is a dance to enjoy with someone else but it requires knowing yourself, and knowing what you want from tango.”
Luz’s teaching reflects sensitivity to each dancer in their own journey to express themselves through tango. Students are guided on how to explore boundaries and the challenge of improvising.
Join Luz Castiñeiras for Tango Conditioning on Saturday mornings at 11 a.m. at Alma del Tango, and discover your inner tanguera/o.
