Summer 2018

 

Join us as we welcome Nito and Elba back to Bloomington for their third visit in the summer of 2018!

 

Both Nito and Elba are an iconic tango presence and a couple of the last living milongueros. The New York Times recently published an article about Nito and Elba that highlights how iconic they are to Argentine tango. Check out the article here.

About BATO Workshops

BATO’s Harmony and Balance workshop series provides accelerated dance training on the fundamentals of traditional Argentine Tango (AT). Under BATO's thoughtful consultation, world renowned instructors conduct intensive two-days workshops focused on three topics: musicality, navigation, and centering. While the context of instruction may vary depending on the instructor(s)' pedagogical preference, the instructional focus remains on these three basic skill sets.

 

The Master Series offers intensive training under the close mentoring of selected dance instructors. AT instructors spend decades mastering specific skill sets and tango style(s) that gradually comes to define their own 'persona' in the AT world. These workshops tap on such specific style(s) and skill set(s) that best define each individual instructor. BATO deeply respects and values the opportunities for musical interpretation available in all tango styles. The Master Series workshops create opportunities for our dancers to share with these instructors their knowledge and passion.
