I trained almost daily for over a decade as tango dancer.

For me it was a lifestyle choice: drills, postural development, biomechanics of movement, how to hold a dynamical embrace, connection to my body and a partner’s, dismantling tango to rebuild it for teaching purposes etc.

And. Last night I had an epiphany.

For some background, I have danced only maybe 5 times in the last 3 years. So, I had expected my body was out of condition and the tango would be sub par.

But, something else happened.

Because of this long break, I let go of the technical constructs, the expectations of dancing in any particular way. I opened up and surrendered to the mystery of uncertainty.

I let my body flow and through it my soul found it’s voice.

Awakened. Connection.
Boldly expressing its luscious desire and flare.
Available to meet my partner where they lay.

Surrendered to the moment, I showed up as me incarnated, embodied.

Inspired.

In my acceptance I found my authentic glow.

Harmony in partnership. Feeling met. Open.

My body hums this morning.
My heart is open.
I feel reconnected.
I am reborn.

Tango friends
It’s been a rough trott for everybody during these times of social distancing. None more so than for professional tango teachers.
Rather than sitting on their butts they’ve banded together to create an online festival for you. The funds go to those tango teachers in ARGENTINA who need support right now.

Check out the festival.
Besos xx

En una nota reciente hablábamos de cómo la parálisis generalizada en todo el mundo impacta seriamente en el ambiente tanguero.

Algunos hogares vieron sus ingresos rápidamente reducidos a cero. Es un problema que no es exclusivo de Argentina y se extiende por distintas regiones donde el género tiene una comunidad fuerte.

Por eso, diez bailarines repartidos entre Argentina, Grecia, Suiza, Italia y otras geografías convocan a una movida solidaria enorme: Unidos Tango Festival.

A cambio de un aporte de entre 10 y 85 euros (al cambio de hoy, entre 927 y 7900 pesos argentinos, impuesto país incluido) en la plataforma http://www.dancershape.com se puede acceder a más de 70 clases y charlas pregrabadas de un listado sorprendente de artistas de primer nivel de tango (la grilla completa en una de las imágenes de este post).

El Festival se extenderá durante una semana a partir del jueves 17.

Tango Esencia - Rina & Nadim Sawaya

Tango tango tango fun from our friends at Tango Esencia 🌹

To our dear Tango family,

As you know, under the current circumstances Tango Esencia Studio is closed. We hope you are all well and keeping safe. During these uncertain times, it is now more that ever important to stay strong, kind, positive and boost your immune system!

For the month of April, Tango Esencia will be sharing short exercise and technique videos every few days to help you continue with your Tango training and stay healthy. The videos will be bite size clips to motivate you to do the exercises without overwhelming you. We encourage you to exercise as it is good not only for your overall health, but improves your mental health, mood and can also help with relaxation and sleep quality. The recommendation is a half an hour everyday.

Rina will be starting her series with body conditioning exercises and tips for dancers that are simple but effective and help you create a leaner, stronger body(excuse the various locations around the house!). Rina's series will be followed by a series from Ale Joakin Gonzalez and Nadim Sawaya.
Happy practicing!

Big hugs from Tango Esencia Team

Oh how much fun we used to have together ♥️ experimenting with volcadas with my old teaching assistant Ian Flores 😍

Teaching private lessons out of this studio a few days ago brought back fond memories. Really miss training sessions here, especially with these guys. Such a beautiful dance to explore, and an even more incredible one to share.

I know I've been away from Melbourne awhile. But you know with Tango the story never ends there ...

While I was away, great friends of mine (and a former student) opened up a brilliant new Dance Studio (because they are truly brilliant!) - called HD Entertainment - in Prahran (for Hooman & Dalena). They have enthusiastically invited me back to the dance floor to teach there and share my love for connection, embrace and Tango movement. So I do hope you will swing by sometime soon to visit.

For now, I am offering private Tango lessons at HD Entertainment between 11AM - 6PM on Tuesdays & on Saturdays. I cannot wait to share with you more Tango wisdom as has accumulated after 15 years of teaching it 😍

For bookings please message me or feel free to make contact via www.tangobutterfly.com.au

There will be more to come ♥️ I promise.
For now, thank you for sharing the joy that is Tango with me. ♥️🙏🦋

You can read more about the studio at:

One more Sunday — this Sunday — to dance by donation. Women in Tango welcomes all women to share the experience of leading and following Tango.

Part of the proceeds go to Macauley community Women’s services - an organisation that assists women and their children find safe and secure housing when they can no longer stay where they are (often due to domestic violence). You can read more about them here: http://www.mcauleycsw.org.au

Please join us before I head overseas. Spend some time in tango with other women discovering and exploring you. 🙏❤️🌹
