Rodrigo Palacios – a snapshot of our talented visiting teacher & his achievements!

Master and dancer of Argentine tango, he grew up in Buenos Aires surrounded by a super tango family, where tango was breathed through dance, music and singing.

Rodrigo dances from his childhood and with only 14 years old he began to frequent the legendary Canning Hall where he saw the authentic dance of the most renowned milongueros and also of those who at that moment were leading the new tendencies of a wider tango.

In the year 2000 Robert Duvall invited him to have a special participation in the movie Assassination Tango. In 2005 and 2006 he worked as a teacher and dancer in one of the most famous dance school in Japan (“Npo Tiempo Iberoamericano). And in 2007 he was invited as a guest artist by Luis Bravo of Forever Tango for the show held in Buenos Aires.

With more than 20 years of dance and 15 years of international experience, he comes to the tango communities of the world to share his knowledge with the enthusiasm that characterizes him. His classes will make you travel through musicality, body knowledge, technical references, milongueros yeites, involved concepts and the indisputable flavour of this popular dance that you are so passionate about.

Rodrigo is recognised as a great teacher and dancer, having been summoned by the most outstanding schools and festivals in Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Serbia, Croatia, Spain, Finland, Estonia, Italy, France, Switzerland, Russia, Japan, China, the United States and Australia among others.

Introduction to Tango Course – starts this Tuesday (24th September 2019)! $60pp for 6 weeks @ 6pm

Thought about learning Tango? Now is the perfect time!!

We are delighted to announce that our next “Introduction to Tango” 6 classes in 6 weeks program begins on Tuesday 24th September – 6.00-7.00pm, upstairs at Boodle Beasley (315 Elizabeth Street, North Hobart).

The ‘6 classes over 6 weeks for $60pp’ program is designed for complete beginners and will take you on your first steps into a new, exciting and exhilarating experience.

Sensual and passionate, Tango is as individual as you. Its minimalist, basic steps can provide you with a dance of classic simplicity or intricate beauty. It all depends how far you want to take it!

In the 6 Group Classes over 6 weeks, you will learn the essentials of Tango: how to connect with your partner, musicality, the tango walk, basic steps, floor-craft and etiquette. You will develop a sensitivity to lead/follow as you begin to mix with others enrolled in the same program.

The course aims to sufficiently develop your tango dancing skills so that you can dance socially by the end of six weeks. And to ensure the highest quality experience, this course will be limited to 20 participants, so to make sure you aren’t disappointed – visit Eventbrite to purchase tickets here:
