Pugliese and Dramatic Tango

Discover Pugliese and dramatic tango - intensive workshop - Rojo y Negro

The ultimate expression

Pugliese's music is usually perceived as a difficult music to dance to. That's also why we love it: it is challenging and you need some special tools to dance to it in a way that it deserves. In this workshop we will first focus on honing the listening skills and preparing the body for dancing to Pugliese music better, followed by adaptation of movement vocabulary to the music.

If you're not familiar with Pugliese's body of work, listen to some of his most famous compositions you are likely to hear: La Yumba and Recuerdo.

Partner not required. If you come as a couple you can stay together or decide to change partners, this is optional. Please note, advance booking is essential to help us ensure an even ratio whenever possible.

About our intensive workshops

The difference between a regular workshop and an intensive one is that in the intensive workshop we take longer to master any topic. Starting with an introduction of the topic and gradually developing it, we allow enough time to practice a variety of ideas related to that topic.

The subjects in Tango can vary a lot, and while we often introduce new topics, we always schedule the most classic subjects more often in our calendar.

So far, some of the most popular intensives have been:

  • Improver intensive
  • Musicality intensive
  • Improvisation
  • Close embrace
  • Vals / Milonga, in two parts each
  • Armworks
  • Legworks
  • Dancing to Pugliese

We are also open to students' suggestions, and are happy to include new topics every year. Write to us with your suggestion, and we'll try to include it in our schedule.

Note: Even if we sometimes repeat the most popular workshop themes, they are always different and worth taking more than once to really master a particular aspect of tango.
Please book your desired workshop as early as you can to help us ensure even numbers and an even level in each workshop.
