About Joaquin Amenabar's Musicality Workshops

Joaquín Amenábar plays Bandoneón as a soloist as well as with his tango orchestra
"Orquesta Típica de la Guardia Vieja". He dances tango since 1994. He has combined both
disciplines and created an absolutely unique and practical method for teaching tango music
to dancers without musical education.

His method doesn't use any technical musical language at all. It allows the dancers to learn
and incorporate to their dance all the different rhythmic units of tango music, from the
simplest to the most complicated ones using a simple dancer's vocabulary.

Throughout the different courses, dancers of all levels can improve their musicality while
dancing tango, being the first level course the best first tango class a dancer could take
before starting to learn steps and figures.

No steps are taught in these classes. The workshops are not theorical and the dancers are
moving in the dance floor working on the different exercises all throughout the class. In these
workshops no difficult steps or figures are used, even though in the higher musical levels of
We really encourage you to participate in all 4 workshops!
One workshop $30
Four workshops $100.-
