Argentine Tango Workshop with Ney Melo, May 20-21
We are very excited in bringing Ney Melo back to Houston for a
workshop in May. Ney has been invited back for workshops several
times and his workshops have consistently been very popular.
Ney Melo and Jennifer Bratt dance an elegant style of social
tango which is rooted in the traditions of the neighborhood
of Villa Urquiza in Buenos Aires. Their style is defined by a
smooth and graceful walk,a powerful sense of musicality, a mix of
subtle and intricate steps,precision of movement and an intimate
embrace. Their passion and respect for tango, its culture, and
its music is clearly evidenced in their emotional dancing, as
well as in their teaching. Ney and Jennifer have studied together
with such maestros as Javier Rodriguez, Jorge Dispari y Maria del
Carmen, Geraldine Rojas, and Julio Balmaceda y Corina de la Rosa.
Their school of Tango Argentino, EL ABRAZO (which means The
Embrace), is based in New York City at Empire Dance Studio
and in their classes together they are dedicated to inspiring
students to dance tango with feeling, musicality, cadencia, and
connection - the way it is danced in Buenos Aires. The atmosphere
in their classes is relaxed, personable and lively, and they
place equal emphasis on the ladys role as the mens. Technique
and the essence of tango, both fundamental to dancing well,
are stressed in whatever step is being shown. Ney and Jennifer
have recently taught and performed in Singapore, Malaysia,
and Australia, as well as extensively all over North America.
