Beginner Open Role Tango Series

Queer Tango Collective is hosting an 8 week Beginner Tango series, open to all genders. Once again, we are extremely honored to have Carla Marano, lay the foundations of tango for our new dancers!

Carla is very well-respected all over the world and especially in Buenos Aires. She has been a teacher of teachers for several years and we are fortunate to collaborate with her in our endeavors to transmit tango in ways that are expansive and creative.

At QTC we believe that learning both roles is essential to understanding the dance and movement art form even if one chooses to dance one role on the social dance floor. If you are experienced in following or leading and would like to expand your knowledge and experience, you are welcome to join this series.

During the 8 weeks, Carla will introduce ideas and touch on concepts within the three main pillars of her teaching: "Technique", "Structure of Improvisation" and "Music".

Come to the our Open House Practica and Free Introductory Class on Jan 1st, if you are unsure about joining this entire series!

Carla Marano

Carla belongs to a generation of dancers that helped transform tango from a popular dance form with virtually no pedagogy, into a highly-sophisticated, deeply-understood art form. This was accomplished through many years of penetrating investigation into its movement technique, technical language and musical interpretation. Carla was an essential part of this investigative process, which has fueled the evolution of the dance, and its explosive popularity worldwide.

Over the years, Carla has devised her own didactic method based on her unique approach to the dance, a system which she has been able to share with colleagues from different generations and styles. She gave courses in different academic institutions, organizations and special events in Buenos Aires, such as La Viruta, CITA, and Festivals of the City Government of Buenos Aires, among others. Since 2013 she runs the popular investigation space 'La Propuesta' with Octavio Fernandez in La Viruta and El Juvenil.
