International Teachers Training (I.T.T.)
2nd – 9th September 2018

Being a talented dancer and a good and inspiring teacher are two very different things.

Don’t get us wrong, you do need to know how to dance very well in order to teach, but you don’t need to be born with a special talent, as long as you work hard for it. And you also definitely don’t need to be one of the top Tango performers in the world to be one of the best and most fascinating Tango teachers.

Moreover, teaching Argentine Tango is more than simply teaching someone how to dance, because Tango itself is so much more than just a dance. ITT (International Teachers Training) is designed to help you fully understand that difference.

Furthermore, our ITT program is a great opportunity for each participant to improve his/her own teaching skills, both from a technical, methodic and pedagogical point of view as well as from a personal, creative and inspirational one.

About Rui & Inês

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.
