Rui & Inês are professional dancers and teachers of Argentine Tango.
While dancers, their work is characterized by their improvised performances. An improvised dance is born, develops and disappears forever in front of the eyes of the audience who therefore witness something unique, something alive that grows to the sound of the music and that, with it, ends. The viewer will never again watch the same show, not even if performed by the same couple at the sound of the same song. According to Rui & Inês, nothing can be truer, nothing can be more honest!
As teachers, and without disregarding the underlying traditions and values of this centennial dance, Rui & Inês have been working to demystify Argentine Tango by making it accessible to everyone and even more interesting to learn. They’ve been doing so by merging and harmonizing the different styles of Tango dancing and the different musical currents associated with each of these styles into a lighter, more organic and more effective teaching methodology.
They emphasize the communication between the couple, the harmony, the dialogue, the fluidity and the natural movement. Because they love improvisation, they teach their students to improvise, thus developing in them an artistic and creative side, more suitable to express feelings, emotions, life.
Rui & Inês are professionals. This is their life. This is their future. Tomorrow they will be better than today and their students certainly too.
