Author & Argentine Tango Teacher Gabriela Condrea

FRIDAY, January 4th

6-7pm: Intro to Tango

Join us for an introduction to Argentine Tango - the language of communication, the philosophy, the art of perception. It's about connection, communication, and conversation. No partner needed. All are welcome! (Pictures & Testimonials)

Level: All Levels, Complete Beginners Welcome!

SATURDAY, January 5th

1-2pm: Technique for the Yellow Hippopotamus in All of Us

We all have moments in which we feel out of place, clumsy, like, Whose feet are these?! The Yellow Hippopotamus is about learning to love even the parts you don’t like about yourself, finding poise in unfamiliar and unpredictable situations – connecting with yourself better so that you can more seamlessly connect with others.

Level: All Levels

2-4pm: Tango is About the Connection

Gabriela has shared her approach to tango through the prism of connection across the country, both through her book When 1+1=1: That “Impossible” Connection and her tango teaching. This is her signature workshop: an introduction, a reminder, an excuse to slow down and listen, really listen to one another so that connecting becomes the foundation of the dance. From there, the possibilities are endless. Tango is about connecting with your partner, with those who share the space with you, and with yourself. Tango is About the Connection. (Testimonials)

Level: Adv. Beginners - Intermediate/Advanced

---------------------------------- Bio & Philosophy ---------------------------------

Gabriela on teaching tango:

“I teach tango with the idea that the connection comes first; that if you can build a good connection, the possibilities are endless. Tango is about what is, not what should be. Each tango is unique and each person brings something exceptional to the dance. Since the tango couple is more than just the sum of its parts, you can’t dance tango by yourself. Tango is about the connection with your partner, with those who share the space with you, and with yourself.” (video -->)


Gabriela Condrea is an educator by trade, an Argentine Tango teacher since May 2010, and the author of When 1+1=1: That “Impossible” Connection, a tango-inspired book on interpersonal connection and human relationships – tango as a metaphor for life. Since releasing her book in August of 2011, Gabriela has taught tango and presented her book from Los Angeles to Orlando, Florida; Tempe, Arizona to Richmond, Virginia; Philadelphia to Portland, Maine; and many places in between. Since tango took over her life, Gabriela has become a bit of nomad. Catch her while she’s in the Northwest! (more)
