For a long time Fabiàn Salas didn´t make any teaching tours outside of Argentina and has been missed badly by his fans and students in Europe
Finally he´s back again, together with his new dance partner Lola Diaz.
La Rogaia is one of the few places in Europe, where he will give a workshop in 2012.
About Fabiàn Salas:
Sometimes when you speak about one of the great masters of Argentine Tango, you take it for granted, that everybody already knows everything about them.
Maybe though it does make sense to tell alittle about Fabiàn Salas.
During the Golden Age of Tango, Tango had been danced everywhere in Buenos Aires und you learned to dance Tango watching your parents or other dancers from your town quarter.
This happened completely naturally. Everybody watched and imitated the good dancers …and practiced. Oppurtunities to do so you found everywhere. Nobody had to think about teaching methods or didactics.
Fast forward to the 80ies. After the end of military dictatorship in Argentina the Tango scene has changed completely. Only a few dancers remain who have lived in the Golden Age and can pass on their knowledge. Most of them are excellent dancers, but have never wasted a thought on how to teach Tango efficiently.
A group of young dancers around Fabiàn Salas and Gustavo Naveira now tries to figure out, how the old milongueros danced. They try to get a profound understanding how the movements and dynamics of the dance work and develop for the first time a didactically based teaching method. This method until today has a big impact on all Tango dancers, no matter whether they dance traditional Tango or Tango Nuevo.
But they do not stop at that point. With their profound knowledge of the dynamics of Tango they break with old, sometimes rigid conventions and develop a new way of dancing Tango, more open, more fluent. And they start to dance to music, which hasn´t been considered danceable until then, for example the music of Astor Piazzola.
Fabiàn Salas becomes world famous as one of the main characters of Sally Potter´s world famous Tango movie “The Tango Lesson” , together with Gustavo Naveira and Pablo Veron.
To learn from Fabiàn Salas and Lola Diaz in a small, intimate group with a maximum of eight couples is more than simply taking Tango lessons. It is a unique opportunity you are not offered very often.
