—————————————-

Shahin Medghalchi is a well traveled Argentine tango dancer and teacher in North America, Europe, and Argentina. A sensational dancer and a skilled teacher, Shahin was trained by masters of tango from Buenos Aires through her travels since 1995. With Shahin’s unique method of teaching, and her undivided attention to your dance needs – fundamentals of tango through advanced vocabulary – she will help you achieve a sensible social floor dancing technique, elegance, musicality, and connection with your partner, as it was and still is danced at the salons/ milongas of Buenos Aires.

http://www.thetangohousesf.com/about/

The Focus will be on walking, connecting, musicality, and dancing on the social dance floor in comfort. we will also explore the external vocabulary of tango, vals, milonga, and dancing it to the requirement of the social floor within the music. This would encourage your creativity in the dance without restrictions and will help you to become a universal dancer.

After 22 years of dancing and 14 years of teaching tango, I learned that almost all the figures could be danced in an embrace in a small or crowded spaces and I will help you to achieve that!

I also teach the technique of stage dancing, performing, figures, nuevo style, and choreograph for the performers as well in Argentine tango, other Latin dances, and Ballroom.
