Schedule and Registration on

Workshops of Argentine Tango with Alejandra Mantinan, with the help of the Argentinian Maestro Gustavo Guarnieri

Workshop A - all levels over two years of experience: The attitude of the dancer, his axis, his center of gravity. The weight transfer, the connection with the ground, the setting in motion and the walking of the couple. The communication between the partners: the Abrazo, the shoulders and the back of the leader; the hips of the follower.

Workshop B - Intermediate / advanced: Energy and relaxation. Inwardness before starting moving. The attitude of the leader regarding the follower and the invitation issued by the leader. The answer of the follower. Implementation with the Ocho, the Boleo and the Gancho.

Workshop C - Advanced: implementation of moving ways to undertake Sacadas, Colgadas and Soltadas. The changes of direction and the 1,001 possible combinations on opening of the follower.

Alejandra Mantinan

Every Argentine Tango addict heard about Alejandra Mantinan, who enter into the legend as soon as she became successful in Tango Pasion at the end of the 90s, where she and Gustavo Russo formed an unforgettable young couple, animated by a vivacity and fluidity never seen until then.

Alejandra Mantinan, sacred Queen of the Tango in Buenos Aires, is today a key figure of the young generation of Argentine dancers. It is difficult to tell here, without risking to forget some, the names of her illustrious partners, or rather the list of great tangueros who had the chance to dance with her.

In addition to the fabulous sequences she has given us in the various companies with which she has performed, Alejandra Mantinan has made a tangible contribution to the Tango in the evolution of the mode of communication between the partners: the matter is no longer "driving" the follower, but the art of inviting the partner by a subtle and multifaceted language, and for this one, to carry a creative answer to this invitation.

Alejandra Mantinan is not only a prodigious dancer since she was 8 years old.
She is also one of the most sought-after teachers in the world of Tango (more than 80 events this year worldwide), who has the rare characteristic of having, in addition to his top-rated artistic training, a scientific background in traumatology and kinesiology.
This exceptional combination induced a teaching method which is remarkably coherent with the "mechanics" and the "dynamics" of the human body, that teachers with a sole artistic origin, no matter how talented, have so much difficulty in qualifying and explaining. Alejandra Mantinan has the talent of a generous star and the accuracy of an engineer. Expect to be somewhat shaken in your Tango dancer certainties ...

Life is beautiful: Alejandra Mantinan comes to Paris on September 14th, 15th and 16th.

Gustavo Guarnieri, who teaches now Tango de pista in Catania (Sicily), was a resident teacher at the famous Confiteria La Ideal, an iconic Tango institution of Buenos Aires created in 1912.
Faithful member of Alejandra Mantiñan's teaching team, he leads workshops of Argentine Tango at an international level.
