Natasha y Haris
Guggi y Fernando
We are very excited to have Natasha and Haris returning to Tango Feast.
They have been working together for a few years now. When they come together they combine a decade of experience of teaching tango to bring you a dynamic, spicy and sensitive dance.
With refine attention on technique, their workshops focus on bringing expression and elegance to the dance.
TNatasha describes her approach to Tango as follows:
“You could say that my energy, posture and embrace belong to the milonguero style, but I work with many elements of tango salon such as the dynamics in giros and elegance with the lines of the legs. For me the thing that prevails in dance is the connection and after the technique. The technique is very important and in fact my explanations are very technical, but all this with the premise that the feelings are above the technique and not the other way around."
At the moment we live, work and travel between Europe and Buenos Aires.
They meet on a dance floor about 15 years ago, while Guggi was studying at the dance academy in The Netherlands. Recently, many years later, they have meet again, somewhere, on another dance floor and it's been such a pleasure also to recognise each other immediately in the dance, but with 15 years more experience in their body!. They catch up and danced more, they shared stories about their own teaching experiences and approach.
We are really looking forward to work together again at this edition of Tango Feast
