No matter what level you are currently at, Gaston’s workshops offer the chance to strengthen and deepen both your ease and skill in dancing Tango.
Gaston’s extensive training in ballet as well as Tango, combined with his deep understanding of body mechanics, forms the basis of his refreshing approach to teaching Tango:
“It is important that we can connect with ourselves before giving ourselves completely to the magical connection that exists between two people.”
