JONATHAN YAMAUCHI AND OLIVIA LEVITT
"Experience the Feeling"
Jonathan and Olivia, Argentine tango instructors, teach an advanced level of body mechanics movement and technique. Together, they developed their method from a lifetime of training from varied backgrounds incorporating martial arts, music, Pilates, Gyrotonics, Gyrokinesis, ballet, and intense tango instruction under Carlos Gavito, Marcela Duran, Maria Plazzolla and other world class instructors.
Whether beginning or advanced, students of Jonathan and Olivia receive contemporaneous instruction focusing on detailed technique, perfecting the tango walk (from which all tango moves originate) breathing, pauses and the intimate close embrace in the salon milonguero apilado and nuevo styles with particular detail to internal and external nuances not perceptible to the third party observer.
To quote Gavito: "To dance tango slowly and beautifully is the most difficult tango to dance well." This is because it requires excellent walking technique and balance to beautifully execute slow and sensual tango movements in the salon milonguero apilado style -- which incorporates the most sensual and intimate styles of close embrace Argentine tango. Jonathan and Olivia teach you these nuances and transform your tango into an aesthetic level that is beautiful, sensual and intimate. Gavito said: "You can't teach the feeling". Jonathan and Olivia teach you the technique that will give you the key to experience the feeling of being in another euphoric dimension while dancing even the most complex movements in tango. Study with Jonathan and Olivia and learn the technique behind their intimate close embrace tango. Experience a beautiful level of tango that you may not have previously imagined was possible.
