Argentine Tango In Pasadena CA
Dear Friends and Students:
As usual next Wednesday we will have our Tango class, I will continue working on milonguero steps, turns and figures, these particular movements are small and unnoticed to most people, they are very subtle and difficult to learn but the most important thing is that your dance partner will notice them.
I call this Tango Class
” Así se Baila el Tango”
(Tango is danced like this)
Don’t Forget to Bring a Friend!!!!!
Im very please to announce that my Therapy Company “Jade” has oficially opened its doors, I have two awesome receptionists working, Im writing articules to magazines and all the advertisement is moving forward in the area ( probably soon you will see my pics on the busses lol). My company is what provides the space for Tango and thanks to it I can keep the most financially affordable Tango Class rate in the entire LA, not to mention the fact that the level of the class is on the Top ( Im not joking! ) since Im not only spent so many years learning Argentine Tango dance and its cultural aspect ( which comes from my own DNA) Im also a Biomechanics Specialist I used to teach to Sport Teachers how the body moves, I have spent a lot of time studying how Tango dancer moved, its biomechanics, its essence, I have interacted with so many teachers and masters to bring you guys the best tango level I can. I hope anytime start writing about Tango, posture correction and other.
I bring this up to ask my students to help promote my office services which is provided with high quality and care. Im very proud of my profession that I have carried on for more than 25 years. I treat nameless kind of illness from Arthritis to all kind of joint and muscle pain. if you having a problem or know someone that is in pain and can not find a solution refer it to me, is the best way to help someone you care and at the same time help your Tango class to be on top.
Ok now Today’s Topic
Lunfardo II ( See previous newsletter for the definition)
Today I will teach you just one word of Lunfardo
“Napia” o “Ñata”
“Napia” o “ñata” means “Nariz” ( Nose)
This is a famous tango song called “Cafetín de Buenos Aires” “Small tavern of Buenos Aires” (1948) where the author depicts he remembering as a little boy looking from the outside through the glass of the Tavern or Coffee shop with the Nose against the Glass looking inside, and how the Tavern was like his second mother. You cab hear the song below you have the Spanish version and its English with its Translation
