On the weekend of August 24th and 25th, Desert Tango will play host to an intimate Tango weekend with Daniela Borgialli. There will be unique classes in a format never seen in Tucson, as well as plenty of social dancing to be had.
Daniela has been dancing almost her whole life. After receiving her MFA in dance and choreography from ASU in 2000 she started teaching Argentine Tango. Daniela has taught classes and workshops as far away as New York and Massachusetts, as well as in every state along the Mexican border. In 2012 she and her partner Rommel won 2nd place in the USA Argentine Tango Salon Championships! Daniela is also certified in Restorative Exercise, and brings her knowledge of bio-mechanics to every class she teaches.
To make the weekend special, we are straying from some of the traditional workshop formats. All the classes on Saturday will be size capped at three couples. This allows Daniela to work with you in a more focused setting, and will ensure that you get the most out of the classes that you take. There will be technique and style work along with the more familiar step-pattern knowledge. Saturday evening Daniela will be joined by Rommel to teach the pre-Milonga class at the Sheraton, and they will do an improvised demo as well. On Sunday there will be a follower’s technique class with a playful figure and some RES work to round out the Tango weekend.
