        specializing in Tango Milonguero in the world. They are
        based in Albuquerque, NM and Buenos Aires, Argentina. They
        have taught and participated at the Albuquerque Tango
        Festival since 2014. They previously have taught in

        Ferrara 2011-2013, USA, Oceania and European tours. Also
        they will be at the Encuentro Milonguero San Francisco
        2018. They combine more than 20 year of experience
        teaching Tango in a social way with extraordinary ability
        to explain the basic mechanics of danceable tango and from
        there to build a very personal dance. In their classes,
        they increase the confidence of their students by giving
        them the tools they need at all times.

        Eva Garlez after starting to learn Tango, was quick
        develop considerable knowledge and understanding of both
        roles. Eva’s love of dancing is transmitted as she
        teaches and performs. She has become an outstanding
        milonguera, having taught and performed with great
        milongueros. In class she provides all her knowledge
        and experience as a dancer, optimizing the learning
        process of the students to help them quickly achieve a
        high technical quality. She focuses mainly on posture,
        balance and elegance to develop an intuitive and personal
        dance, which enhances the beauty of the dance.

        Pablo Rodriguez discover Tango more than 10 years and fell
        in love of the dance and the music instantly. Because
        of his infatuation with the dance, Pablo began to seek
        expertise in recognized milongueros, developing his own
        personal style of dance and teaching.

        He focuses on leadership: clear and precise lead, posture,
        music and the comfort of women. He also focuses on the
        good management of the line of dance and how to optimize
        the tools one has on the dance floor. The fundamental
        principles are stepping, elegance, balance, interpretation
        of music and comfort of women, all with a high technical
        quality. And all this without forgetting that Tango is
        a social dance. More at www.evaypablo.com

        and emotional connection through the dance. Open
        conversations on psychology of tango and its input in

        understanding of the leader and follower role in the dance
        to become one. Musicality classes to allow you to feel

        and learn more about the follower’s role in tango is
        welcome. Please bring your questions and we will discover
        the answers together. Throughout this series we will not
        only be growing in our technical skills, extending our
        sensitivity, and practicing nonverbal conversation with our
        partner, but also having fun learning our responsibilities
        as a follower.
