Classes are designed to condition the physical body (tone, control, posture) and expand your body awareness through conscious movement. Training in body mechanics, musicality, strengthening and stretching. A friendly space for asking questions and exploring what you need to develop your dance.

::: Mis Amigos De Ayer:::

Tango 1945

This version is by Orquesta Anibal Troilo with singer Floral Ruiz

Esta noche tengo ganas de aturdirme de recuerdos
con el frío denso y lerdo de las cosas del lugar,
recorrer las viejas calles por el tiempo transformadas
y entre piedras olvidadas empaparme de arrabal.
Me contemplan con asombro las estrellas y esta esquina
con perfume de glicinas y colores de malvón…
Debo estar acaso viejo, melancólico y más flojo,
que me sale por los ojos esta cálida emoción.

¿Dónde están mis amigos,
mis amigos de ayer?
Se me vieran llegar
como un duende y llorar…
y llorar al volver.
¿Se perdieron tal vez
por un rumbo sin luz,
sin destino… sin fe?
Por distinto camino
me perdí yo también…
¡Si me vieran llegar
como un duende y llorar
mis amigos de ayer?

Para qué llorar ahora lo que el tiempo se ha llevado,
si está muerto mi pasado como muerto está mi amor…
Una voz canta en mi oído mis canciones olvidadas
y la noche perfumada se hace toda una canción…
Me entristecen estas calles, las estrellas y la esquina
con perfumes de glicinas y colores de malvón…
Es que estoy mucho más viejo, melancólico y más flojo
y me sale por los ojos hecha llanto mi emoción.

::: Spring Film Project :::

The cherry blossoms have come and gone yet we tried to capture their message. Our beautiful city beneath the pink trees and a Vals that that invites you into the fleeting moment. The beauty of impermanence knowing that in the longest and darkest Winter there is the arrival of Spring!  Imagining the joy that is coming as our world lets go of all the restrictions and we are free to embrace and dance again! We hope you enjoy our latest film project and please subscribe to our YouTube Channel!

Strength and love to all the people affected by this global health crisis, not only the sick and their caregivers but all the lives and livelihoods disrupted. It is troublesome to watch friends and neighbours afraid to get too close to each other and we hope that this distancing will not become a part of our collective conscious for the long term. The comfort of closeness and touch is vital to our well being and our humanity. Sterile environments as a norm would be much worse for our immunity. Please stay aware as we take in the message that the other is dangerous and that contact and closeness is irresponsible. Amidst all of the isolation we should isolate this moment in time as a necessary measure but return to feel safe to embrace and to be embraced.
Abrazos, Deborah and Santiago
