Annalise of Tango Roots highly recommendeds this vibrant young tango dancer to us, so we are delighted he has accepted our invitation to teach a Wednesday evening class.

German Landeira was born in Buenos Aires and started his dancing career at 16 years old. Learning from many professional teachers, many of them well known all over the world, he decided to join a dancing college (ISFA (SuperiorArtistic Training Institute)), to learn and start his career in an academic environment and continue developing as a tango and Argentinian folklore teacher and dancer. During the course, he met his most inspiring teacher, Suyay Quiroga, who has shared with him her vast knowledge. German is fully dedicated to training and developing as a professional dancer of Argentine tango salon and folklore. His knowledge of English language, professional and good communicational skills allows him to work in Europe, and share experience with his students.

Dance the music weekend Swansea Feb 19 FB events.jpg
 
 

This will be Steve Morrall’s third visit to teach in South Wales, by popular demand after his very well-received previous visits in 2018. Steve is known all over Europe as an excellent tango teacher and musician. He brings many years of experience, deep insight into tango music and dance, and has evolved a very accessible and innovative teaching methodology. His classes are also great fun!

Steve and his wife Debbie set up Tango UK in 1999 and run their own dance studio at Bramshaw in the New Forest, which is dedicated exclusively to promoting, teaching and sharing Argentine tango. The Tango Essence teachers have enjoyed many weekends at Bramshaw learning from some of the rich variety of internationally known teachers who teach there.
