From Buenos Aires: Susana Miller Workshop

DECEMBER 5-6, 2009, TUCSON, AZ This Workshop was GREAT!!!

Susana Miller

Susana Miller is a world renowned tango instructor who took the time and patience to define the difference between how tango is actually danced by the locals at local milongas in Buenos Aires, Argentina and how it is taught – which is all too often a stage dance that is not milonga friendly.

Her teaching of the “Milonguero Embrace” is world renowned. Her teaching style is geared toward the social dance of tango – you know the one we all dance together. Susana Miller’s understanding of the Milonguero style of dancing tango is surpassed by none. She is respected and requested the world over for her passion and distinct teaching style in the milonguero embrace.

Love & Light,

Great is the power of might and mind,
but only love can make us kind,
and all we are or hope to be,
is empty pride and vanity –
If love is not a part of all,
the greatest man is very small.
